Vietnamese National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Phu Trong spoke of his confidence in

between the two countries. According to local media, Chairman Trong said exchanges

by high-level officials, particularly on border issues, had helped promote friendship

between the two countries. He also stressed that trade and economic ties were continuing

to flourish. The annual growth of two-way trade is increasing by about 25-35 per

year, reaching $940 million in 2006, and is expected to increase to $2 billion by
