Minister Bui Thanh Son affirmed that Vietnam will create favourable conditions for Qatari businesses and investment funds to explore the market and invest in Vietnam. Regarding tourism, Minister Bui Thanh Son expressed his wish to welcome more Qatari tourists to visit Vietnam in the near future in the context that Vietnam's tourism industry is having a strong recovery after the pandemic.

In order to create a breakthrough for the bilateral cooperation in the coming time, Minister Bui Thanh Son suggested that the two sides soon organize the third meeting of the Joint Committee to review and discuss measures to promote cooperation in all fields, speeding up the negotiation and signing of bilateral cooperation agreements.
