EU – Vietnam – Belgium relations: A new direction after the pandemic

In the roadmap to promote relations with the European Union (EU) and its member states, Vietnamese National Assembly President Vuong Dinh Hue is to lead a high-level delegation of the National Assembly of Vietnam, taking in the 5th World Congress of Speakers of Parliaments (WCSP5) in the Republic of Austria, working visit with the European Parliament (EP), the Kingdom of Belgium and an official visit to the Republic of Finland from 05-11th of September.

This is the first foreign trip undertaken by Mr. Hue, after taking office as National Assembly Chairman, and it takes place after the EU – Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) officially came into effect after one year, and more than two years since his predecessor’s visit in April 2019.

During his visit to EU and the Belgian civic and political institutions, Mr Hue will take part in a working session with the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, as well as the Leader of the Belgian Parliament, who directly chaired the Vietnam – Belgium Business Forum.

Notably, the Forum is not only an opportunity for Belgian businesses who wish to engage with Vietnam and to do business directly, but also to help Belgian businesses to engage directly with Vietnam.
