Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh received a 19-gun salute at a ceremony hosted by his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese on Thursday morning at the Australian Parliament House in Canberra.

The 19-gun salute is the highest honor that Australia renders to a government leader, showing that Australia treasures its bilateral ties with Vietnam.

After the welcome ceremony, the two PMs held talks and then witnessed the exchange of cooperation documents in the education, energy, mining and mineral, agro-forestry-fishery, science-technology and innovation, banking, trade, and finance fields.

PM Chinh and his spouse are paying an official visit to Australia from Thursday to Sunday at the invitation of PM Albanese and his fiancée.

This is the first visit to Australia by a Vietnamese government leader since 2018, the year that Vietnam and Australia upgraded their bilateral ties to a strategic partnership.

The ongoing visit by PM Chinh is expected to mark a new milestone in Vietnam-Australia relations.
