Hanoi (VNA) - President of the Vietnam Fatherland Font (VFF) Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan hosted a reception for Ambassador Bruno Angelet, head of the EU Delegation to Vietnam in Hanoi on April 11.

During their meeting, the officials focused their discussion on how to boost the comprehensive cooperation and partnership between Vietnam and the EU, towards bringing interests to both sides.

In 2016, the EU surpassed the US to become Vietnam’s second largest trade partner and a leading importer of Vietnamese commodities.

In the first quarter of this year, the two-way trade reached 4.34 billion USD, representing a year-on-year rise of 27.18 percent.

The figure is expected to grow further in the future as the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) takes effect.-VNA
