Vietnam's Prime Minister Set to Visit the United States and Brazil

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh is set to strengthen ties with the United States during his attendance at the UN General Assembly in New York next week, followed by an official state visit to Brazil. According to Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Pham Thu Hang, Chinh and his Vietnamese delegation will be traveling from September 17 to 26.

During his visit to the U.S., Chinh is expected to address the UN General Assembly general debate, the Climate Ambition Summit, and the High-level Meeting on Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness, and Response. He will also hold meetings with UN Secretary-General António Guterres, President of the UN General Assembly Dennis Francis, as well as other national leaders and international organizations. Chinh intends to engage with U.S. Congress leaders and influential Americans to discuss enhancing economic and trade relations between Vietnam and the U.S.

Notably, Vietnam and the U.S. recently upgraded their relations to a comprehensive strategic partnership during President Joe Biden’s visit to Vietnam. Following his visit to the U.S., Chinh will proceed with an official state visit to Brazil, where he plans to hold dialogues with President Lula da Silva and leaders of the Brazilian National Congress. Brazil is Vietnam’s largest economic and trade partner in Latin America, with bilateral trade turnover reaching $6.78 billion in 2022, marking a 6.6% increase from 2021.
