CAMP DAVID, Maryland (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden will sign a strategic partnership agreement with Vietnam during a state visit to the Southeast Asian country in mid-September, Politico reported on Friday, citing three people with knowledge of the deal’s planning.
The agreement will allow for new bilateral collaboration that will boost Vietnam’s efforts to develop its high technology sector in areas including semiconductor production and artificial intelligence, Politico said.
A source familiar with the plans told Reuters on Friday that Biden was weighing a September trip to a G20 summit to discuss partnership with Vietnam.
