Signing of Vietnam-EU FTA expected in 2018

Negotiations on a free trade agreement (FTA) between Vietnam and the EU Chief can be signed and adopted by late next year, said chief negotiator of the European Union (EU) Raffaele Mauro Petriccione.

He made the remarks at a workshop on the Vietnam-EU FTA hosted by Movement of French Enterprises (Medef) and Asia Center in Paris on Saturday.

Speaking at the workshop, Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Quoc Khanh noted that both sides are completing the agreement in terms of languages and legal regulations to submit to higher levels in early next year for official signing and ratification.
