Trade, investment and education are the fields of very dynamic cooperation between Vietnam and Canada over recent years. Currently Vietnam is Canada’s biggest trade partner in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Canada’s statistics show that bilateral trade value last year rose to 6.36 billion CAD (4.8 billion USD), an increase of 4.2 percent over 2017. Meanwhile, the number of Vietnamese students who opt to study in Canada is increasing, now at over 14,000, topping those from Southeast Asia and the fifth in the world. It is noteworthy that the community of 250,000 Vietnamese in Canada is serving as an important bridge for the two countries develop their fine relations of friendship and cooperation.

The Vietnam visit by PM Trudeau in November 2017 and the on to Canada by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc in July last year are clear messages of the two countries’ desire to further boost bilateral relations. In a recent speech, PM Phuc said the Vietnam – Canada relations are now at their best in all the fields.
