This will bring about substantive support for the two countries’ businesses and peoples, and create a momentum to boost collaboration in digitalisation and biology.

Via video, Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son said that Vietnam appreciates the RoK’s consideration of the country as a key partner in the Indo-Pacific Strategy as well as in the implementation of the Korea-ASEAN Solidarity Initiative.

Vietnam will join the RoK in efforts to achieve visions and goals of the new relationship framework - the comprehensive strategic partnership - and fulfill the role of a coordinator for ASEAN - RoK relations for the 2021- 2024 term, added Son.
