"Upgrading the Vietnam-US relationship to a comprehensive strategic partnership brings huge opportunities for the two countries to enhance cooperation in trade, economic, investment, education, science, and production and participate in high-quality supply chains. But from commitment to implementation is a long journey. I hope that the Vietnamese Embassy and representative agencies in the US to strive to concretize cooperation agreements between the two countries and ministries, sectors, and localities of Vietnam would actively participate in this process," said the Vietnamese President.

He asked the Permanent Mission of Vietnam to the UN to work harder to expand the ties between Vietnam and international organizations, establish cooperative partnerships, and advance Vietnam’s position and prestige.

Vietnamese representative agencies in San Francisco and Houston were demanded to strengthen cooperation between Vietnamese and US localities, and encourage overseas Vietnamese to invest in the homeland.
