During the period, Denmark's aid projects and programs for Vietnam would give priority to trade, investment, agriculture, fisheries, environment, and administrative reform. “They would focus especially on socio-economic development and poverty reduction in remote areas,” Bendtsen continued. Hung hailed the tangible benefits Danish assistance had brought, helping Vietnam achieve its socio-economic development targets. He expected bilateral trade to go up and Denmark's direct investment in Vietnam to exceed $1b. Bendtsen said Vietnam was an important Asian partner for Denmark and that his country supported Vietnam's bid to become a WTO member and a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in 2008-2009.
