The European Union wants to ratify the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement in 2018 and put it into force as soon as possible. This is the main theme of a seminar held in Brussels, Belgium recently.
Vietnamese Ambassador to Belgium Vuong Thua Phong said amid changes in the world, all parties need to make greater efforts to realize the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement and to soon enforce the deal.
According to EU chief negotiator Mauro Petriccione the ratification of trade agreements between the EU and partners is very crucial.
Enterprises affirmed the importance of the agreement to win-win economic and trade cooperation. They agreed that the trade pact will aid not only Vietnamese firms but also companies and people of Europe.
Along with technological transfer, Vietnam is expected to make a greater progress and participate in high value-added areas in order to ensure substantial growth.
