In the war time, the support in term of material and spiritual and of friends from all over the world was the motive power for us to struggle for the independence and freedom. Nowadays, international cooperation has become an more and more requisite aspect for in economic development of Vietnam. Since Vietnam issued “Doi Moi” policy, Vietnam’s government exerted all the effort to expand external relations of Vietnam to all countries in the world, and we can proud of our achievements. Vietnam joined Association of South East Asia Nations (ASEAN) in 1995, The AsiaEurope Meeting (ASEM) in 1996, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in 1998, and the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2007. Vietnam has been affiliating and developing with the global economy with a extraordinary pace. In the development of international relation, Vietnam priors the closed relationship with the neighbor countries like ASEAN countries and the partner of ASEAN in Asia like Japan, China, Korea, India, etc. in which Korea has been a strategic partner of Vietnam since the official visit of Korea's CEO President Lee Myung-bak in October 2009. Vietnam has been received a lot of support packages from Korea in many areas: economic, investment, education and culture, etc. In internship period in International Cooperation Department of Ministry of Finance, I had a very good opportunity to participate in an activity under Vietnam – Korea financial cooperative program, receiving many instructions from experts in this department and research on this field. I think that Vietnam – Korea relationship will be better and better and both Vietnam and Korea will get a lot of benefit from each other if we have a suitable policies and actions to consolidating and improving this relation.

Vietnam – Korea Government financial cooperation program 2.1.1. Overview of Vietnam – Korea relation In economic, Korea is one of the most important economic partners of Vietnam. FDI from Korea to Vietnam up to now is about USD 17 billion sponsored to 2064 projects and created more than 500 thousand employees. Recently, Korea investment structure has transformed to service industry, heavy industry (steel production, construction, information technology); there are some large-scale projects (the processing and laminating steel complex project of Posco Corporation, West West Lake New Urban Area project of group of 5 Korean construction companies, Bac An Khanh Urban Area project of Posco – Vinaconex cooperation, etc.) About facilitative loan, since 2009, the MoF and Korea Export Import Bank signed the following Agreements: No. Unit: USD Projects Commited value 1 Providing equipments for Pleiku Hospital 3 000 000 2 Providing equipments for Hà Trung Hospital,Thanh Hoa 3 000 000 3 Constructing motorway Hanoi- Hai Phong package No10 100 000 000 4 Hoa Khanh Tay Water Supply Project 29 998 000 5 Thanh Hoa city social-economic development project 32 730 000 6 Water supply and waste water process project in Moc Chau 12 980 000 7 Providing equipments for Thanh Hoa College of Industry 3 000 000 8 Smart motorway system Ho Chi Minh City – Trung Luong 30 000 000 9 Contructing Vinh Thinh Bridge 100.000.000 Total 314.708.000 14 Dinh Hue Phuong – HQ A – International Economics – K46 Recommendations for strengthening Vietnam – Korea financial cooperation relation 2010 Figure 2: List of Projects sponsored by Korea since 2009 Source: Project Management Division – ICD - MoF Moreover, some Agreements are prepared for signing in next time including: Unit: USD No. Projects Committed value 1 Providing training equipments for Ayun Pa Vocational 2.963.000 College 2 Providing equipments for Ca Mau Hospital 2.963.000 3 Constructing Yen Bai Complex Hospital 45.000.000 Total: 50.926.000 Figure 3: List of projects prepared to be sponsored by Korea in the near future Source: Project Management Division – ICD - MoF Assessing the implementation of Korea’s lending Agreement: in general, the Korea’s loans are released tightly followed the schedules, meet the needs of the projects. However, there are some projects that needed to be renewal contract preparing and capital withdrawing time such as solid waste processing project in Ninh Binh, Project of constructing 5 Vietnam – Korea vocational colleges, Water supply Project in Hoa Binh. To reduce this problem, we need to focus on preparing the project before asking for approval and signing contract to maintain that the project runs fluently as expected. In international trade, Korean import export scale to Vietnam reached USD 8.85 billion in 2008, increased 34.4% in comparison with the year 2007, stood at the forth position. Vietnam exported USD 1.78 billion (increases 42,44% in comparison with the year 2007, focused on agriculture and aquaculture products, mineral, handicraft and light industry products), imported USD 7 billion (increased 32.38% % in comparison with the year 2007, focused on industrial products and process industry products).

The Intergovernmental Panel about economic and technology cooperation was set between two countries. About labor issue, Korea is the third largest labor exporting market of Vietnam at present. There are around 54,000 Vietnamese labors working in Korea. On May 25 th, 2004, we signed an agreement on moving labors from Vietnam to Korea pursuant to the Employment Permit System of Korea. In tourism factor, recent years, Korean tourists have become one of the main sources to Vietnam: in 2007 there are 475,000 tourists, in 2008, as the affects of economic recession, this figure reduced to 450,000 people. In education and culture sector, mutual agreement between two nations in August 1994, Memorandum of Understanding about culture, arts, sport and tourism in October 2008 and many other agreements about youth exchange and education. Two nations usually hold cultural exchange programs, exhibitions, motion-picture industry. In 2006, Korea established Korean Culture Center in Hanoi.

At present, there are about 5000 Vietnamese students studying in Korea. In the end of October 2009,on occasion of the President Lee Myung-bak had official visit to Vietnam, the Leaders improved relation between two nations to be “strategic partnership” 16 Dinh Hue Phuong – HQ A – International Economics – K46 Recommendations for strengthening Vietnam – Korea financial cooperation relation 2010 2.1.2. Financial cooperation under ASEAN + 3 frameworks Under ASEAN +3 frameworks (comprise of 10 ASEAN member countries, and three partners: China, Japan and Korea), the financial cooperation relationship between Vietnam and Korea has not been quite plain, mostly focus on dialogues and exchanges information about the macroeconomic situations, participating in regional cooperative initiatives including Chiang Mai initiative, Asia bond market initiative and ASEAN research group. Compared to Japan, the role of Korea in ASEAN +3 finance is quite modest. However, recently, Korea has encouraged to research on improving cooperative relationship within ASEAN +3 such as analyzing the procedure of credit support for small and medium enterprises in South East Asia area. These are some initiatives of financial cooperation in ASEAN area with the participation of Korea. Chiang Mai Initiative (CMI): Under ASEAN +3 frameworks, CMI was approved in May 2000 in order to improve cooperative relationship and facilitation in the region on foreign exchange to provide urgent aid to the countries facing temporary difficulties in terms of balance of payment. This important monetary cooperation consists of the following contents: - Expanding the capital scale of ASEAN swap (ASEAN Swap Agreement – ASA) - Establishing the system of bilateral swap arrangements (BSA) among member 8 members of ASEAN +3 - Improving the provision mechanism and policy dialogues in ASEAN +3 in the level of: (i) Minister of Finance (AFMM +3); and (ii) Vice Minister of Finance and Deputy Governor of State Bank (AFDM +3) The aim of CMI is to expand the ASEAN Swap Arrangement (ASA) to all ASEAN members and to set up a network of bilateral swap arrangements among ASEAN 17 Dinh Hue Phuong – HQ A – International Economics – K46 Recommendations for strengthening Vietnam – Korea financial cooperation relation 2010 members and 3 partners China, Japan and Korea to provide liquidity support for member countries that experience short-run balance of payment deficits. Up to now, there are 16 bilateral swap arrangements signed, in which Korea signed 5 arrangement with ASEAN5. However, Korea has no action to speed up negotiation bilateral swap arrangements with other ASEAN countries including Vietnam. ASIA Bond Market Initiative (ABMI): ASEAN +3 have prepared to implementing ABMI aims to develop efficient and liquid bond markets in Asia, which would enable better utilization of Asian savings for Asian investments. ASEAN bond market development is an important content of financial cooperation of AFMM +3, in which Korea and Japan are the leaders of this initiative. Vietnam bond market in general and capital market in particular are quite young and weak in the development process towards effectively integrate to regional bond market. Under this initiative, Vietnam has been received many supports from Japan, however, the support of Korea concentrated mostly on setting up and developing website Asianbondonline of ASEAN +3 to encourage member countries to update the development of bond markets in these countries to provide useful information to foreign investors. Up to now, this website has been run and Vietnam is one of the most active members in providing data for this website. Stimulating training and research activities: Korea has provided some training courses for high-grade personnel of Ministry of Finance and State Bank of ASEAN countries about the regional financial system and international financial integration under ASEAN +3 financial cooperation. These course were valued quite useful and effective. 18 Dinh Hue Phuong – HQ A – International Economics – K46 Recommendations for strengthening Vietnam – Korea financial cooperation relation 2010 2.1.3. Financial cooperation under the framework of ASEAN – Korea Comprehensive Economics Partnership (AKFTA). ASEAN – Korea Free Trade Area agreement had been signed officially on May 16th 2006 in Manila, Philippines, in which the tax reduction regulation will be implemented since 2006 and finished in 2011 for the founder members of ASEAN and Korea, 2016 for Vietnam and 2018 for Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. However , tax reduction has not been performed because some ASEAN countries have not fulfilled their procedure to ratify the agreement. Korea has just ratified the agreement and is has been valid since June 1st 2007 but they have no more legal document about tax cut and tax reduction. Vietnam finished the procedures to announce new legal document about tax reduction, these document will be valid when Korea officially announce their regulations. 2.1.4.
