VTV.vn - Vietnam will boost bilateral and multilateral relations in the time to come as stated in the draft documents submitted to the ongoing 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV).

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of the Congress at the National Convention Centre in Hanoi on January 27, Hoang Binh Quan, head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations, said Vietnam will make efforts to make its bilateral relations more substantive and effective, focusing on increasing political trust.

Currently, the CPV has a resolution to enhance Vietnam's multilateral relations in a spirit that the country will both actively and proactively engage in multilateral mechanisms and initiatives, he said.

“This is a development step in the foreign policy of the Party and Government of Vietnam in the coming term,” he noted.

Regarding the effectiveness of Vietnam’s foreign policy, Quan said that Vietnam has joined nearly 20 free trade agreements, which means the country’s trade and investment space is very large. For a country like Vietnam, with its current level of development, this is a great international integration effort, he affirmed.

The task for Vietnam now is to better its policy system and infrastructure, especially digital facilities, so that it can participate in the world’s playgrounds more confidently and practically, he went on.

“Vietnam will make every effort to effectively and responsibly implement its international commitments as well as those to multilateral institutions,” he said, adding that the country will promote international integration with higher quality to take advantage of international cooperation and support for its renewal cause.
