PM meets with President of Eurasia Economic Commission


Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on May 29 met with Chairman of the Board of the Eurasia Economic Commission Viktor Khristenko, on the occasion of the signing of a free trade agreement (FTA) between Vietnam and the Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU).

The Vietnamese leader underlined the significance of the agreement, which he said is a modern and comprehensive deal with necessary flexibilities and balanced benefits which take into account the specific situation of each side. He added that it is a breakthrough for economic-trade ties between Vietnam and the EAEU’s member states.

For his part, Khristenko expressed his hope that Vietnam will serve as a bridge linking the Union with ASEAN member states.

The two sides expressed their belief that the FTA will create a foundation for the EAEU to bolster trade and investment connections with Vietnam and the Southeast Asian region in particular, and the Asia-Pacific in general.

Vietnam and the EAEU began negotiations on the bilateral FTA on March 28, 2013.
