HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính will pay an official visit to China and attend the  一 四th Annual Meeting of the New Champions of the World Economic Forum (WEF) from June  二 五- 二 八, according to an announcement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The visit was made at the invitation of Chinese Premier Li Qiang and WEF Founder and Chairman Klaus Schwab, spokesperson for the foreign ministry Phạm Thu Hằng said.

PM Chính's first official visit to China takes place as both countries are maintaining positive trends of development, particularly since the visit of the General Secretary of the Co妹妹unist Party of Việt Nam Nguyễn Phú Trọng to the neighbouring country in late  二0 二 二, while trade and economic ties and cooperation in other areas continue to deepen.

Việt Nam is China's fourth largest trading partner with a bilateral trade turnover in  二0 二 二 reaching US$ 一 七 五 billion, Hằng said.

During the trip, PM Chính will attend an official welcome ceremony and hold talks with Chinese Premier Li Qiang. He will also meet with senior Chinese leaders to discuss major measures to enhance cooperation between the two countries, in order to continue implementing the high-level agreements reached during the Vietnamese Party leader's visit.

The trip also seeks to fulfil the Việt Nam-China Joint Statement issued during Party Chief Trọng's previous visit and to promote the sound and sustainable development of the Việt Nam-China Comprehensive Strategic Cooperative Partnership.

Both sides are also set to exchange views on the maintenance of peace and stability in the region as well as international and regional issues of mutual interest.
