FM Bui Thanh Son has a phone talk with Party Secretary of China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Lu Xinshe.

At the talk, the Vietnamese minister stated that the Vietnamese Party, State, and people have always prioritized the development of friendship and a comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership with China.

He also thanked Guangxi for donating 800,000 doses of SinoPharm vaccine and medical equipment and supplies to help Vietnam in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the coming time, the Vietnamese FM suggested that the two sides should maintain exchanges and contact at all levels in a flexible form; step up the sharing of information and policies related to pandemic prevention and control, and coordinate together in this work in border areas; take effective measures to maintain the growth momentum of economic-trade cooperation; and make it easier to import Vietnamese goods, especially agricultural produce and aquatic products; coordinate in border management, speed up the construction of border gate infrastructure and soon accomplish internal procedures to upgrade border gates; and promptly handle arising problems.

For his part, Lu Xinshe affirmed that Guangxi appreciates the positive development of China-Vietnam relations as well as the achievements in cooperation between Guangxi and Vietnamese ministries, sectors and localities.

In addition, Guangxi will make efforts to improve the efficiency of customs clearance of goods at railway and road border gates, facilitate the import of Vietnamese products, and implement effectively the common perceptions of high-ranking leaders of the two parties and countries, as well as strengthen friendship exchange and substantive cooperation with Vietnamese localities, particularly those along the borderline, thereby contributing to consolidating the China-Vietnam comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership, he concluded.
