The first thing to do is to coordinate better the exchange of information to better tackle the differences between the two countries. For example, the two sides have cooperated effectively in the fields of oil and gas cooperation, energy and so on. Especially, in the Roundtable of Vietnam - Russia enterprises on March 14, Vietnam enterprises mentioned the cooperation on transportation, including seaports and transportation routes between the two countries.
He said: "In the field of tourism and agriculture, we also see many opportunities for the two sides. Is Vietnam a potential market? I think there must be two-way movement. Therefore, in my opinion, it is more attractive if we build factories or joint production facilities. And we also want to listen to the exchange from Vietnamese enterprises about how to cooperate effectively. I would also like Vietnamese companies to introduce similar projects to co-develop."
