During his working visit to Argentina this week, Mr. Thuong, who is head of the Party Central Committee’s Information and Education Commission, stressed that two-way trade turnover enjoyed a tenfold increase over the past 10 years, from around 300 million USD in 2006 to over 3 billion USD last year. He said Vietnam has maintained its annual GDP growth of 7% and the rate for this year is predicted to be 6.7%. Mr. Thuong said these achievements have reduced the national poverty rate from 58% in 1993 to below 5% last year.
