Economic diplomacy has contributed to maintaining the core values of trade, free trade and supporting multilateral trade.

Vietnam posted economic growth of 7.38 % in the first quarter of this year, the highest over the last decade, and 6.79% in the second quarter.

The positive contributions of all ministries and branches, including the important role of the diplomatic sector, have attributed to the achievements.

At the 30th Diplomatic Conference, diplomats also said that Vietnamese embassies, consulates and general consulates abroad act as a bridge connecting Vietnamese business and foreign ones.-VNA
