Chairman Dang Thanh Tam answered to the interview of foreign media 

Vietnam's most outstanding imprint when participating in APEC is that it is one of the few members to successfully host APEC twice, in 2006 and 2017. According to many experts, this is not something that all APEC members can do.

Apart from taking on the hosting, Vietnam still actively hosts many meetings of APEC working groups, such as the 6th APEC Human Resource Development Ministerial Meeting, the 3rd APEC Business Council (ABAC III), as well as actively contributing to APEC's common activities and interests, especially long-term cooperation orientations, demonstrating initiative and proactive in building and shaping multilateral institutions. Not only that, Vietnam is also one of the most active members in proposing initiatives and cooperation projects, etc.
