Coming at the invitation of Minister of Foreign Affairs Bui Thanh Son, she is expected to hold discussions on fostering the Vietnam-Australia strategic partnership and the ASEAN-Australia comprehensive strategic partnership, and regional and global issues of mutual interest, foreign ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang said.

Wong was Australia's first Minister for Climate Change in 2007-10 and Minister for Finance in 2010-13.

She became foreign minister last month.

Vietnam and Australia established diplomatic relations in 1973 and became strategic partners in 2018.

Trade between the two countries last year was worth US$12.4 billion, about 50 percent more than in 2020.

Both countries aim to be among each other's top 10 commercial partners and to double investments by both sides.
