Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh landed at Prestwick airport on October 31 morning (local time), starting his trip for the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) and a working visit to the UK at the invitation of his counterpart Boris Johnson.
During his stay from October 31 to November 3, the leader is scheduled to address the conference and have meetings with leaders of countries, international organisations and funds, and others.
His participation in the conference will extend a strong message of a responsible, proactive and active Viet Nam that is joining hands with the international community in settling global challenges on climate change, and demonstrate determination, efforts as well as difficulties and challenges facing Vietnam in coping with the phenomenon.
The Prime Minister’s visit to the UK will help consolidate the political trust and further deepen multi-faceted cooperation, thus making bilateral relations become more practical and effective.
Recently, the Viet Nam-UK strategic partnership has developed strongly and positively. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the two countries have still maintained the exchange of high-level delegations and contacts. The UK is now Viet Nam’s third largest export market in Europe, and its 13th largest foreign investor.
