According to Ms. Pham Thanh Xuan, an important criterion of the "Tradition and Friendship" Fund is to promote cooperation development between Vietnam and the Russian Federation. In 2016, the Government of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam signed a Protocol to support the production of motor vehicles in Vietnam. Among the tasks set forth in the Protocol is establishing a joint venture company for the production and assembly of UAZ off-road vehicles and spare parts and components.
