The greatest strength in the cooperative relationship between the two countries is a high degree of political mutual understanding and trust. The two countries share similar views and stances on international issues. Kazakhstan considers Vietnam an important partner. Kazakhstan highly appreciates Vietnam's support for international initiatives of Kazakhstan, especially the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA).

In an interview with the World &Vietnam Report (WVR) earlier, Kazakhstan Ambassador to Vietnam Yerlan Baizhanov said that the total import and export value of goods between the two countries will reach 426.1 million USD, up 11.6% compared to 2020.
However, the outcomes achieved in the field of economy and trade between the two countries in recent years have not been commensurate with the potential and there is still plenty of room for trade development between the two countries. The two sides need to take advantage of the tariff preferences that the Free Trade Agreement between the Eurasian Economic Union and Vietnam (VN-EAEU FTA) brings to each party. In addition, the two governments need to come up with specific measures to further promote bilateral cooperation in the fields of trade, industry, investment and tourism development.
