To optimize opportunities brought by the Free Trade Agreement between Vietnam and the Eurasian Economic Union, both sides promised to coordinate and gradually address barriers on the import and export of goods, especially agro-fishery-forestry products, with the aim to raise two-way trade to 10 billion USD by 2020.

They affirmed to continue facilitating oil and gas exploration and exploitation on Vietnam’s continental shelf and Russian territory and encouraged the expansion of cooperation in other fields such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) and gas power supply.

The sides reached a consensus on expanding joint engagements in security-defense, science-technology, culture, tourism, education-training, and labor; as well as on the advancement of partnerships between their localities.

They exchanged views on international and regional matters of common concern. They stressed the need to maintain peace and stability, which involves ensuring aviation and navigation security, safety, and freedom in the East Sea and solving disputes peacefully on the basis of respecting international law, including the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982, fully and effectively implementing the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea, and working towards the early signing of a Code of Conduct in the East Sea.

The sides stated they will maintain coordination at multilateral forums, foster cooperation within the framework of the United Nations, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, the Asia-Europe Meeting, and the ASEAN-Russia cooperation, for the sake of the two peoples, and for peace, stability, and development in the region and the world.
