Vieät Nam, South Korea ink plan to lift bi­lat­eral trade

Minister of In­dus­try and Trade Traàn Tuaán Anh and South Korean Minister of Trade, In­dus­try, and En­ergy Sung Yunmo signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing (MoU) in Seoul on Thurs­day on an ac­tion plan for at­tain­ing US$100 bil­lion in bi­lat­eral trade by 2020.

The sign­ing was wit­nessed by Na­tional As­sem­bly Chair­woman Nguyeãn Thò Kim Ngaân, who is on an of­fi­cial visit to South Korea from De­cem­ber 4 - 7.

The MoU is im­por­tant as it re­flects the com­mit­ment of the two min­istries to fur­ther lift twoway trade as agreed by the two coun­tries' top lead­ers at the APEC Eco­nomic Lead­ers' Week held in Ñaø Naüng last year.

Un­der the ac­tion plan, the two sides will co­op­er­ate to sup­port Viet­namese en­ter­prises in en­hanc­ing their com­pet­i­tive­ness in the fields of spare part man­u­fac­tur­ing, au­to­mo­biles, gar­ment and tex­tiles, footwear, and elec­tron­ics. They agreed to fa­cil­i­tate the trade of agri­cul­tural prod­ucts with the es­tab­lish­ment of a work­ing group among the Viet­namese Min­istry of In­dus­try and Trade; the RoK's Min­istry of Trade, In­dus­try, and En­ergy; and
