Excited about PM @AlboMP upcoming visit to #Vietnam (and his @IISS_org #SLD2023 keynote!).

A short 🧵 from me about the 🇦🇺🇻🇳 relationship, its momentum, opportunities and future trajectory on the occasion of 50th anniversary 👇 1/
Fairly new-found strategic closeness under the Coalition gov resulted in a strategic partnership.
"The 2 countries are increasingly aligned in their strategic outlook and both find each other supportive and, frankly, useful, for their own strategic goals."
#Australia has been a reliable partner in providing assistance to #Vietnam's #UN #peacekeeping forces, and it has supported #infrastructure in the vulnerable #Mekong region or donating #vaccines during #Covid #pandemic...
@FinancialReview 3/
🇦🇺 & 🇻🇳 share not only a vision of a stable and peaceful region, but also a commitment to guard the stability and peace through support for the rules-based-order and for #multilateral institutions. #strategicPartnership #StrategicConvergence #LikeMinded 4/
#Economically, there's a lot of room for growth.
🇻🇳 is 🇦🇺's fastest-growing #trade partner in the #ASEAN region, even through the #pandemic years.
Yet, in terms of #investment, 🇦🇺 businesses are late to the party in this competitive market. @Diplomat_APAC
Key sectors where 🇦🇺🇻🇳 can further flourish, other than #strategic security (#MaritimeSecurity etc),
should include partnership in #DigitalTransformation. E.g. support in digital capacity building, cyber literacy training, re- & upskilling... @ASPI_org 6/
More practical & forward-looking areas for #cooperation should focus on #RenewableEnergy, (eg #technology partnership in the #solar and wind sectors, preparing for Green #Hydrogen, #LNG adoption)shifting #globalsupplychain of #critical & #rareminerals 7/
For more dive into the #strategic calculus of #Vietnam and where #Australia fits into the picture, incl Hanoi's views on #AUKUS & #QUAD, have a listen of @latrobeasia's #podcast 8/
