Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh held a working session at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on May 16 (local time) as part of the trip to the US.

In meeting the NYSE executives, including the NYSE President Lynn Martin, the Vietnamese PM expressed his pleasure to visit the largest stock exchange in the world in terms of market capitalisation, and thanked them for the warm welcome received from the NYSE and the privilege to ring the bell to end the trading session of May 16.

PM Chinh stressed that Viet Nam is cracking down on the violations of a few unscrupulous investors in the country’s own stock markets to ensure its integrity, security, transparency, and sustainable development.

PM asked the NYSE to cooperate and share experience in making an effective stock market in Viet Nam as well as the country’s ambition to be a regional-level financial centre, foster the win-win partnership between NYSE and Vietnamese agencies and companies, contributing to the development of the US-Viet Nam comprehensive partnership.
