The PM also stressed the importance of
increasing engagements in defence, culture, and science-technology, and carry
out more delegation exchanges.

Vietnam is willing to invest in Ukraine’s
strong sectors, he stated, adding that the two countries should review documents
and mechanisms in order to facilitate bilateral cooperation.
