Hanoi plays a key role in the US – Vietnam relations, said Kritenbrink at a meeting with Secretary of Hanoi’s Party Committee Vuong Dinh Hue on July 6, adding cooperation and trade activities between Vietnam and the US have been on the rise despite the Covid-19 impacts.
Kritenbrink thanked Hanoi’s authorities and its people for supporting the US Embassy, as well as the US diplomatic mission in the city.
The US Ambassador considered the gift of 150.000 face masks from Hanoi to the US as a symbol of friendship between the people in the two countries.
According to Kritenbrink, the US Embassy would hold a number of activities to celebrate 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and US, including a tilework and a conference on the bilateral relations in October.
Hanoi’s Party Chief Vuong Dinh Hue expressed his delight about the strong relations between Vietnam and the US, especially in investment and trade.
Hue said in the first six months of 2020, Hanoi has been a pioneer city in Vietnam in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as during the economic recovery efforts.
The successful organization of the “Hanoi 2020 – Investment and Development Cooperation”, held on June 27, was among Hanoi’s efforts in this regard, Hue stated.
During the event, Hanoi’s authorities handed over investment licenses to 229 projects worth a combined US$17.8 billion, many of which are from US investors, Hue informed, saying he expected greater cooperation between Hanoi and US cities in the future.
Hue stressed Hanoi would do its utmost to contribute to the US – Vietnam relations, as well as the city’s cooperation with US cities.
Hanoi would continue to create favorable conditions for US investors and enterprises doing businesses in Vietnam, including in the capital city.
Hue stated Hanoi would cooperate with the US Embassy in holding events celebrating the 25th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral diplomatic relations, particularly in breaking ground for the construction of the new US Embassy building in Hanoi this year.
