“Today Belarus and Vietnam are experiencing a fundamentally new phase of trade and economic relations following the signing of the free trade agreement between the Eurasian Economic Union and Vietnam, and with regard to the relations with Belarus, the protocol on industrial assembly of motor vehicles in Vietnam. The agreement and the protocol open up new opportunities that can contribute to trade growth. The Vietnamese partners and we believe that the boost to the relations should come through successful joint pilot projects that will lead to the result eventually.
