(Source: VNA) HCM City (VNS/VNA) - Ho Chi Minh City's flood-prevention plans should be focused more on the inner city and be closely linked to overall urban planning, experts have said.

Since it normalized relations with the powers like China in 1991 and the USA in 1995, Vietnam has begun to integrate into the global economy. Throughout this process of integration, Vietnam has signed numerous free trade agreements (FTAs) with countries and groups of countries. Vietnam's earliest FTA was the agreement signed with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in 1996, just one year after Vietnam joined ASEAN. Then, in 2007, Vietnam officially became a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO). After that, Vietnam signed many more FTAs, especially the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) at the end of 2018 and most recently the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) in June 2019. So far, Vietnam has signed 13 trade agreements, of which 12 have entered into force. Vietnam is also negotiating three other agreements.
