On the morning of December 13 local time, President Xi Jinping met with Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh at the seat of the Vietnamese government in Hanoi.

Upon its arrival at the premises, President Xi’s motorcade was warmly welcomed by several hundred Vietnamese youths and representatives from various sectors who lined the streets and waved the national flags of China and Vietnam.


President Xi pointed out that the China-Viet Nam relationship is making steady progress. Recalling the signing ceremony of several dozen cooperation documents that he and General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong witnessed yesterday, President Xi noted that the documents cover a wide range of cooperation between the two parties and two countries and fully reflect the breadth and depth of this bilateral relationship.

China and Vietnam have common ideals and convictions and enjoy a shared future. He and General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong have jointly announced the building of a China-Vietnam community with a shared future that carries strategic significance, thus opening a new chapter for China-Viet Nam relations in the new era. It will bring greater benefits to the two peoples and make positive contributions to peace, stability, and development in the region and beyond.

President Xi pointed out that Chinese modernization has brought unprecedented opportunities to countries around the world and will boost Vietnam’s efforts to accelerate its industrialization and modernization.


The Chinese and Vietnamese economies are highly complementary and closely linked. The signing of a cooperation plan on synergizing the Belt and Road Initiative and the Two Corridors and One Economic Circle strategy has opened up new vistas for broadening practical cooperation between the two countries. China will import more quality Vietnamese products, strengthen its connection with Vietnam on industrial and supply chains, enhance connectivity, and expand its cooperation with Vietnam in emerging areas like renewable energy and the digital economy.

President Xi stressed the need for China and Vietnam to work in solidarity for their socialist cause. The two sides may increase exchanges on ideological work and party theories and share experiences on party and state governance. It is also important that the two sides increase people-to-people exchanges and cooperation to deepen the friendship between the two peoples and prepare the younger generation for the task of taking over the baton of the China-Viet Nam friendship at an early date.

While the remarkable achievements in China’s reform and opening up and Viet Nam’s Doi Moi are the result of hard work by the two countries, they are also attributable to a peaceful and stable world in general and an open and inclusive Asia-Pacific in particular. The two sides must guard against and oppose any attempt to destabilize the Asia-Pacific, and at the same time strengthen coordination and collaboration on international affairs and jointly safeguard a sound external environment.

On behalf of the Vietnamese government, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh warmly welcomed President Xi Jinping to Vietnam. He said that Vietnam and China are two countries cherishing the same ideals and pursuing similar paths. All of President Xi’s visits to Vietnam and his important remarks have strengthened Vietnam’s recognition theoretically and emotionally, deepened the friendship and mutual trust, and enhanced the amity and affinity between the two countries. Demonstrating their strategic vision, General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and President Xi Jinping agreed on a new characterization of the bilateral ties yesterday, i.e. a Viet Nam-China community with a shared future that carries strategic significance.

This is a major historic milestone in the relations between the two parties and two countries, charting the course and injecting new impetus for the Viet Nam-China relations going forward. Viet Nam admires the historic achievements of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era in adapting the basic tenets of Marxism to China’s specific realities and its fine traditional culture admires the enormous progress China has made in its reform and opening up, including the development of the Xiong’an New Area and the Hainan Free Trade Port, and will continue to learn from these achievements.

 Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh said he fully agrees with the important views President Xi Jinping made in his article published in a Vietnamese newspaper. The further strengthening of Vietnam’s relations with China is the top priority and a strategic choice of the party and government of Vietnam. It is also the strong desire of the Vietnamese people. Vietnam stays committed to the one-China policy.

It supports China in achieving greater development and strength and in playing a more important role in international affairs. It supports the global initiatives put forth by President Xi. Acting on the important common understandings reached between the two General Secretaries and following the vision of making progress on six fronts, Viet Nam will work with China to maintain close high-level exchanges, strengthen all-round cooperation in trade and economy, subnational and people-to-people exchanges, defense, and security, step up coordination in the multilateral arena, continue to deepen political mutual trust, and further enrich the Viet Nam-China comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership.

Noting that the bilateral relationship has stood the test of time and history, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh expressed his conviction that the relationship will not be affected by any external force trying to sow discord or cause disruption and that the building of a Viet Nam-China community with a shared future will benefit the two peoples and contribute to peace, stability, and prosperity in the region.

Cai Qi, Wang Yi, and Wang Xiaohong were present at the meeting.
