Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern will pay an official visit to Vietnam from November 14 to 17 at the invitation of Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh.

During her visit to Vietnam, PM Ardern is expected to have meetings with leaders of the Vietnamese Party, the State, the government, and the National Assembly in Hanoi, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

She will also join some activities in Ho Chi Minh City.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vietnam - New Zealand strategic partnership has developed well and effectively in recent years.

The two sides regularly exchanged delegations at all levels, with the most recent being the meeting between the two foreign ministers in New Zealand in September.

Regarding economic and trade cooperation, their two-way trade turnover in the first nine months of 2022 reached US$1.1 billion, up 13.6 percent year on year.

New Zealand has provided Vietnam with a stable source of Official Development Assistance (ODA), 30,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, and NZ$2 million (US$1.2 million) to assist in post-pandemic recovery.

In addition to cooperation in education, labor, agriculture, security and defense, the two countries are currently interested in a number of new areas such as combating climate change, digital transformation, and energy transformation.

Vietnam and New Zealand also cooperate in international issues including the East Vietnam Sea situation and at multilateral organizations, forums, and free trade agreements that the two countries participate in.

The two nations established diplomatic relations in 1975.

In July 2020, the two countries upgraded their relations from a comprehensive partnership to a strategic partnership, bringing the relationship to a height.
