HANOI – Malaysian Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob will pay an official visit to Việt Nam from March 20-21 at the invitation of Vietnamese Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính, the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced.
Việt Nam and Malaysia have a long-standing friendship with excellent cooperation in many areas since they established diplomatic relations on March 30, 1973.
Since then, the bilateral ties have flourished, especially after being advanced to a strategic partnership in 2015. Despite challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, two-way trade reached US$12.5 billion in 2021, up 25.5 per cent from the previous year.
