U.S. President Joe Biden’s upcoming visit to Vietnam is expected to deepen the partnership between Washington and Hanoi in various aspects, while helping the latter build a tech-based economy and advance innovation, U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Marc Knapper told a press briefing on Wednesday.

He affirmed that Vietnam has a necessary workforce to thrive in the global economy in the 21st century.

The U.S. desires to join Vietnam’s efforts in forming a tech-driven economy, Knapper said in Hanoi.

As such, President Biden’s two-day visit to Vietnam will be a key event, he stressed.

The president will pay an official visit to Vietnam on September 10 and 11 at the invitation of Vietnam's Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

This will be President Biden's first visit to Vietnam since he took office in 2021. 

His forthcoming visit shows that the United States attaches great significance to the relationship with the Southeast Asia nation.

“Our policies for Vietnam are aimed at backing its self-reliance, prosperity, independence. They are offered on the basis of mutual respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity, and political regimes,” Knapper underlined.

Over the past few months, as many as five ministerial-level delegations of the United States have traveled to Vietnam, apart from the visits from several groups of U.S. enterprises, and the U.S. Navy's aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan.

During the 10-year period of their comprehensive partnership, the two nations have achieved multiple impressive results in numerous fields, said the ambassador.

He hoped that Biden’s upcoming visit will highlight these great strides and upgrade the two nations’ ties in the future.
