Vietnamese Ambassador to Australia Pham Hung Tam had a meeting on May 7 with Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs of Australia Tim Watts who expressed his hope to see economic, trade and investment cooperation between the two countries develop commensurate with the new stature of the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership.

The Australian official highlighted the positive development in the Vietnam-Australia relations, especially after Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh's visit to Australia and the upgrade of bilateral ties to a comprehensive strategic partnership in March.

Expressing his delight at the success of the visit, Watts held the framework reflects the strategic trust, stature and long-term commitments of the two governments as well as mutual understanding between the two peoples.

Watts emphasised the significance of cooperation between Australia and this region to deal with common challenges and manage the maritime space according to international law.

For his part, Ambassador Tam highly valued the contributions and support that Watts has made to the upgrade of the Vietnam-Australia relations, and suggested that the two sides coordinate to build a detail action plan to realise the partnership in the 2024-2028 period.

He showed pleasure at the cooperation achievements between the two countries, stressing the need for further promotion of bilateral economic, trade, and investment.
