EU sees Vietnam as vivid demonstration of EVFTA success

Brussels (VNA) – Executive Vice President of the European Commission (EC) and EU Commissioner for Trade Valdis Dombrovskis said Vietnam’s rise to become the bloc’s leading trade partner in ASEAN is a vivid demonstration of the success of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA).

Co-chairing the third meeting of the Trade Committee of the EVFTA in Brussels on December 1, Dombrovskis said the EU appreciated Vietnam’s serious implementation of its obligations under the EVFTA, particularly the establishment of the Domestic Advisory Group (DAG) on sustainable development and the promulgation of the revised Labour Code and revised Intellectual Property Law.
