More result-oriented action programmes are needed for Vietnam and the Republic of Korea to realise their cooperation in the fields of nuclear power, energy, minerals, technology, industry and trade.

The emphasis came from the fifth session of the Vietnam-Republic of Korea (RoK) Joint Committee for cooperation in nuclear power, industry, energy and trade in Seoul on December 9, which was held as part of efforts to realise high-level commitments to beefing up bilateral partnership in the areas.
Minister of Industry and Trade Vu Huy Hoang, who headed the Vietnamese delegation, lauded the effective coordination of RoK Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy Yoon Sang-jick as well as efforts of sub-committees and working groups of both sides in implementing reached agreements.

He highly valued the business circles for making proactive moves to foster their connectivity and partnership to tap the full potential of both countries.

The sub-committees reported on their operations since November last year and proposed action programmes to carry out the cooperation agreed.

Ministers Vu Huy Hoang and Yoon Sang-jick witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on apparel cooperation among Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Vietnam Association of Garment and Apparel, the RoK Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, and the RoK Federation of Textile Industries.

They also saw the signing of another MoU on farm machine development partnership between the Korean Agricultural Machinery Industry Cooperative and the Can Tho city People’s Committee.-VNA
