Our relationship with Viet Nam
Viet Nam is an important partner of New Zealand in South East Asia. On 22 July 2020, New Zealand and Viet Nam upgraded the bilateral relationship to one of “Strategic Partnership” in recognition of strong growth in our political, trade, defence and security, and people-to-people links. The Strategic Partnership is aimed at further strengthening the overarching framework for engagement and cooperation between New Zealand and Viet Nam.
Our long-standing development cooperation, totaling NZ$20.5 million this triennium (2021/22–2023/24), supports Viet Nam to grow its agriculture sector, build resilience to climate change and disasters, and develop a more highly-skilled and educated workforce.
