At the meeting, the two sides described the effective implementation of the Vietnam-EU Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) as a top priority at present.

President Quang suggested the two parliaments work closely together to monitor the EVFTA implementation in order to create a strong boost to bilateral trade relations, with an aim of raising two-way trade to 10 billion USD by 2020.

The Russian Duma Chairman spoke highly of the Vietnamese President’s official visit to Russia, saying that it will map out development orientations and deepen the two countries’ comprehensive strategic partnership, including the ties between their legislatures.

The State Duma always pays special attention to promoting and enhancing the Vietnam – Russia cooperation in the fields of economy, trade, science – technology, education – training, defence – security, and tourism, he said.

The Russian legislative body will actively support the building of a suitable legal framework to step up investment cooperation in industry, agriculture, energy, oil and gas between the two nations.

He also expressed his delight at Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan’s upcoming participation in the 137th Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly slated for October in Russia.

President Tran Dai Quang noted his support for cultural exchanges between the two countries, including the organisation of the Russian Culture Days in Vietnam in 2017.

He also called on the State Duma to provide legal assistance and favourable conditions for Vietnamese people living in the country.
