On the half of the Vietnamese Government, Acting Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long congratulated the US leaders and people on their major anniversary and appreciated efforts by US government agencies to promote bilateral ties. He emphasised that with the 25-year relations based on mutually beneficial cooperation and mutual respect, the two countries’ comprehensive partnership has attained positive strides and been expanded and strengthened in all spheres. He highly valued the strongly growing bilateral trade, which has turned the US into the biggest market of Vietnamese exports and Vietnam into one of the markets with fastest growth of imports from the US.

For his part, US Ambassador Daniel Kritenbrink affirmed that his country supports a strong, independent and prosperous Vietnam and respects Vietnam’s political regime.
