Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım is set to pay official visits to Vietnam and Singapore in the last week of August for bilateral meetings and business forums, marking the first time a Turkish premier or president visits Vietnam.

Yıldırım will attend Vietnam and Singapore Business Forums organized by Turkey's Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEIK) on August 20-24 and will have official talks on boosting the trade volume between Turkey and the two Asian countries.

The trade volume between Turkey and Vietnam amounted to $100 million in 2004. Despite the global downturn since then, it reached around $2.2 billion in 2014.

The countries are also expected to sign trade agreements aimed at improving economic relations.
