– Russian’s e-newspaper Infox.ru has
run an article written by Grigory Trofimchuk, Chairman of the Expert Council of the
Foundation for the Support of Scientific Research "Workshop of Eurasian

In the article, the author wrote that the great role and potential of

Vietnam is currently at the centre of the global economy, he noted, adding that
Vietnam is one of the leading countries in the ASEAN and is reinforcing its

country is also one of the 10 fastest growing countries in the
