Vietnam and Singapore will take the next steps, with the strategic trust to be built up intensively, to carry out bilateral cooperation, firstly the agreements on defense, trade, and investment, among others signed during the trip, he said, noting that 28 businesses also inked many memoranda of understanding.

The deals signed this time serve as a cornerstone, not merely ordinary contracts, under which the two sides will seek ways to develop more strongly together and coordinate better in the future, Khuong went on.

He held that through this visit, President Phuc wished to affirm that the foundation of a modern country is taking shape in Vietnam, and that Vietnam will work closely with Singapore to make important strides in the time ahead.

The expert expressed his hope that Vietnam will make strong reforms in the coming time to govern the country more strongly and deserve to be a modern nation.
