VNGOVNet – On behalf of the PM, Deputy PM and Foreign Minister Phạm Gia Khiêm on December 11 sent to the WTO Secretariat a letter informing that Vietnam has completed the procedure of having the Protocol on Joining the WTO Establishment Agreement ratified.

Earlier, State President Nguyễn Minh Triết on December 6 signed an Order to announce the Resolution approving the Protocol on Vietnam’s accession to the WTO after it was ratified by the National Assembly on November 29.

Normally, from the 30th day after the WTO Secretariat receives the letter of notice from Vietnam, the Protocol will become effective to make Vietnam a full WTO member with all due interests and obligations of fulfilling its commitments to the WTO.
