During the reception, Walker spoke highly of Vietnam’s dynamic economic development, voicing his gratitude to the country for opening its door to Chile’s cherry.

The Chilean government hopes to expand cooperation with Vietnam in agriculture, not only in opening markets for farm produce but also in agricultural production and rural development, he added.

For his part, Son said that the Vietnamese government hopes to strengthen agricultural cooperation with Chile, an important partner of Vietnam in Latin America, especially in the application of science-technology in clean agriculture, climate change adaptation and mitigation of natural disaster impact, and forest management and exploitation, along with further collaboration in multilateral mechanisms that the two countries are signatories, including the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).
