VN-US amended air transport agreement agreed
19:09 | 31/07/2013
VGP – The PM has ratified the agreement on amendments to the Viet Nam-US Bilateral Air Transport Agreement.

The Ministry of Transport (MoT) will work with relevant ministries to realise the agreement which was signed in 2003 and amended in 2010 under which the two sides agreed that the 2003 version would still take effect until March 31, 2012.

The new amendments extend the validity of the 2003 agreement indefinitely. It will come into effect after both sides conclude the exchange of diplomatic notes.

Minister of Transport Dinh La Thang and United States Ambassador to Viet Nam David Shear on December 13, 2012 signed an agreement on the amendments.

The amended agreement will create a legal basis to open up opportunities for the two countries to strengthen civil aviation cooperation especially at a time when Viet Nam is preparing to launch a direct route between the two sides.

It will contribute to boosting bilateral ties between the two countries in the time to come./.
