The two foreign ministers will hold the fifth annual Australia-Vietnam Foreign Ministers’ meeting, where they will discuss regional priorities and how we can expand our cooperation, including on climate change, trade and investment, education, and digital delivery of government services.
Wong will also attend the ‘Taste of Australia’s Big Barbecue’ event with Chef Luke Nguyen to showcase Australian cuisine and culture. Vietnam is the fourth-largest agricultural export market and offers increasing opportunities for Australian premium food and wine producers.
