An official with Chinese General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ) said here Wednesday that China will enhance certification and accreditation cooperation with Vietnam to facilitate trade between the two countries.

The in-depth communication and cooperation of certification and accreditation between China and Vietnam has great significance for the trade development between the two countries, said Sun Dawei, Deputy Director of GAQSIQ in an exclusive interview with Xinhua on Wednesday. Sun is in Hanoi for China-Vietnam Certification and Accreditation Forum.

The cooperation will help promote product safety and quality in the two countries, said Sun.

More importantly, the establishment of mutual trust to reach a wider range of mutual recognition will reduce the cost of testing and certificating each other's products, he said.

China and Vietnam started certification and accreditation cooperation with motorbikes, said Sun. In 2002, the GAQSIQ and Vietnamese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) signed a cooperation memorandum which Vietnam admits China's compulsory certification outcome in the field of motorbikes, he said.

The agreement was the first that China signed with a foreign government agency in the field of compulsory certification, according to the deputy head of the China's quality watchdog.
