At the dialogue, President Phuc affirmed Vietnam’s support for a multilateral trading system based on principles and rules, with the WTO as the center.
Vietnam, an open economy, has signed and implemented 15 FTAs with more than 60 partners and has been working closely with APEC members to promote regional economic integration under the APEC Vision 2040, he said.
The President suggested ABAC continue to promote its active role in APEC for an Asia-Pacific region of peace, sustainable development and prosperity for all people.
