They concurred to work closely together to organise activities celebrating the 55th anniversary of diplomatic ties in 2018.

Along with bolstering bilateral cooperation in trade and investment, the two sides will create optimal conditions for businesses on both sides in order to access the respective markets, aiming to raise two-way trade to US$1 billion in the future.

The Vietnamese and Egyptian leaders agreed to beef up collaboration in the fields of standards and quality, while increasing cultural exchange activities, including the organisation of cultural days and weeks in the respective countries.

Both sides were delighted to see the sound affiliation between the two countries at regional and international forums, including mutual support for each other when running for seats in United Nations agencies.

They emphasised their wishes and determination to maintain maritime order suitable to principles of international law shown in the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).
