Russian e-newspaper Rusvesna (Russia Spring) has run an article by Dr.
Alexander Korolev from the Higher School of Economics (HSE) saying that Vietnam
has gained high prestige in the region and the world with success in many areas
The article noted that Vietnam’s activities as a
non-permanent member of the UN Security Council received positive feedback from
the international community. Another important achievement of the country was
the adoption of a resolution initiated by Vietnam on cooperation between the
ASEAN and the UN, it said.

performance as the ASEAN Chair in 2020, during which the association reached
important agreements in socio-economic areas, particularly the signing of the
Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) with the involvement of 15
Last year, for the first time, the ASEAN Defence
Ministers’ Meeting Plus (ADMM ) approved a joint statement and a three-year
plan of actions, it said.
Particularly, the article underlined that
Vietnam’s multilateral and responsible external policies contributed to the
country’s success with balanced external policies and external economic
activities. So far, Vietnam has joined 14 free trade agreements with many world
powers, including Japan, the UK, the Republic of Korea, the European Union, and
the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
Dr. Korolev highlighted the role of ASEAN and
Vietnam in combating COVID-19 with the foundation of a COVID-19 response fund,
an ASEAN Regional Reserve of Medical Supplies, a
Center On Public Health Emergencies and Emerging Diseases, and new
standards on dealing with emergency situations in health care. At the same
time, dozens of online meeting were held within the ASEAN framework and between
the association and its partners.
The author also called attention to Vietnam’s
economic success despite impacts of the pandemic, becoming one of the countries
with highest economic growth.
Dr. Korolev attributed the success to the strong
leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam and effective governance of the
government as well as the consensus of the entire political system and people.
At the same time, many Russian experts have
expressed their belief in the success of the 13th National Congress of the
Communist Party of Vietnam.
Associate Prof. Dr. Artyom Lutkin from
the Far Eastern Federal University of Russia held that the congress
is an important event of not only Vietnam but the international community.
He showed belief that Vietnam’s geo-political and
geo-economic position of Vietnam will continue to rise.
According to Lutkin, Russia pays great attention
to Vietnam’s stable and dynamic development as the country is a long-lasting
friend and the most important strategic partner of Russia in Southeast Asia,
and Vietnam has increasing role and contributions to the political and economic
situation in the world.
For his part, Ivan Pisarev, another expert from
the DVFU, noted that Vietnam was among few countries enjoying economic growth
amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The enhanced position of the 100-million-strong
country means Vietnamese products will be available in more markets and in
Russia, he said.
Earlier, Alexander Sokolovsky, an expert from the
DVFU and President of the Russia-Vietnam Friendship Association in Primorsky
lauded the leadership capacity of the Communist Party of Vietnam, stressing
that the maintenance of economic growth amid COVID-19 pandemic was an evidence
of the stability of Vietnam./.
