The State President  said that the establishment of comprehensive partnership during the visit is an important step forward in bilateral ties and will create a new driving force to elevate the Viet Nam-Canada ties to a greater height as the countries share more common interests on bilateral, regional and global fields. 

The host leader spoke highly of new and practical progresses in bilateral links across trade-investment, development and education, national defense, climate change response and settlement of regional and global issues.

State President Quang was convinced that the implementation of the focal content and development orientations stipulated in the comprehensive partnership framework will boost traditional cooperation fields including economy-trade, education-training, science-technology, and development cooperation, while opening up many new cooperation opportunities in such potential aspects as security-defense, green and sustainable growth, and climate change response.

President Tran Dai Quang hailed Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s visit and his attendance at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Week. 

The President spoke highly of new and practical progresses in bilateral links across trade-investment, development and education, national defense, climate change response and settlement of regional and global issues.

The host leader hailed the outcomes of the talks between the Vietnamese and Canadian PMs; calling upon the two sides to actively implement the content of the comprehensive partnership framework so as to bring Viet Nam-Canada relations to a new period that is more substantive and effective.

Especially, in 2018, the two countries will mark 45 years of their diplomatic ties. The event is an occasion for the two sides to carry out meaningful activities to affirm a new level in bilateral relations. The two sides should maintain high-ranking delegation exchanges and set up new cooperation mechanisms between their ministries, sectors and localities, said the State President.

He suggested the two countries spur educational linkages to support Viet Nam on high-quality human resources development in favor of national growth.

In return, Canadian PM Trudeau highly spoke of Viet Nam’s socio-economic achievements over the past years. Among Southeast Asian nations, Viet Nam is the leading trade partner of Canada and has the biggest number of students there, said the guest leader. 

He affirmed that the traditional cooperation between Canada and Viet Nam will definitely serve as a foundation for the comprehensive partnership to grow strongly in the future.

He also said that multilateral cooperation will help to boost the relations between the two countries in the coming time./.
