UK Prime Minister’s Vietnam visit to deepen strategic partnership

The official visit to Vietnam by Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) David Cameron from July 29-30, the first-ever by a British Prime Minister, is expected to intensify and deepen the two countries’ strategic partnership that has grown in recent years.

Vietnam and the UK set up their diplomatic ties on September 11, 1973. In 2010, the two nations decided to establish a strategic partnership, focusing on seven cooperative areas, namely politics-diplomacy, regional and global issues, trade and investment, development cooperation, education-training and science-technology, security-defence, and people-to-people exchange.
