Vietnam, Indonesia to increase bilateral trade to 10 billion USD

Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue held working sessions in Jakarta on Wednesday with Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi and Minister of Trade Enggartiasto Lukita to seek ways to further expand the partnership between the two countries.

Deputy Prime Minister Hue, who is on a visit to Indonesia from Wednesday to Friday, said that the strategic partnership between Vietnam and Indonesia established in 2013 opened up a new chapter in bilateral cooperation.

He suggested that both sides should continue increasing the exchange of high-level delegations, effectively implementing the existing cooperation mechanisms, and boosting all-round collaboration.

Deputy PM Hue proposed that the two countries actively prepare for the 7th meeting of the Joint Committee on Economic and Science-Technology Cooperation this year to seek specific measures to boost two-way trade to 10 billion USD by next year.
