Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh arrived in the U.S. on Sunday (local time), beginning a working trip to attend the high-level week of the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly, and to conduct bilateral activities in the country.

During his stay in the U.S. until September 23, the PM is scheduled to attend and address the high-level general debate of UN General Assembly, UN Summits and high-level meetings on global issues such as climate change and pandemic response. He will also engage in bilateral meetings with UN Secretary General, President of the 78th session of the UN General Assembly, and leaders of other countries and international organizations.

Within the framework of his bilateral activities in the U.S., PM Chinh will have meetings with the U.S. Vice President, leaders of the U.S. Congress, national security advisor, and some members of the US cabinet. He will meet the Vietnamese community and Vietnamese officials working at UN organizations, visit a number of leading US universities and businesses and the NASDAQ stock exchange, attend Vietnam - US trade and investment promotion conferences, and witness the signing ceremony of an agreement on establishing a twinned relation between Ho Chi Minh City and New York City.

Chinh’s trip holds a great significance, sending out a message of the Party, State and Government of Vietnam to the US and international friends on a peaceful, cooperative and integrating Vietnam that is joining more actively, proactively and effectively in global processes, making important contributions to the Vietnam - UN and Vietnam - U.S. relations in line with the foreign policy of the 13th National Party Congress.
