Meeting Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh in Hanoi on December 16, Szczerski said Poland backs Vietnam’s strengthening of ties with the European Union (EU) and will push for the signing of the EU-Vietnam free trade agreement. 

Deputy PM Minh, for his part, made it clear that Vietnam treasures the development of friendship and long-standing cooperation with Poland. 

He agreed with the guest on closer liaison to prepare for the Vietnam visit by the Polish President next year. 

The host suggested establishing an Inter-Governmental Committee on economic cooperation and signing a framework agreement on financial cooperation, under which Poland will supply a preferential credit package worth 250 million EUR to Vietnam.
