Vietnam's President Tran Dai Quang shown during a meeting with Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi at the Presidential Palace during the World Economic Forum on ASEAN in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang has died in the hospital from a "serious illness despite efforts by domestic and global doctors and professors", state media reports.

He was the administration's most public face at a series of high-profile events, most notably at an APEC meeting in Danang in November previous year where he hosted a bevy of world leaders - including US President Donald Trump and China's Xi Jinping.

He did not appear in public for more than a month past year, raising questions about his health.

Vietnam has no paramount ruler and is officially led by four "pillars": its president, prime minister, the chief of its Communist Party and the national assembly chair.

Official media say the Vietnamese president died at age 61 due to illness on Friday.

According to a statement from the commission, President Quang was in critical condition and has received treatments from a medical team at home and overseas.

In an interview with AFP news agency in 2016 ahead of a visit by the former French leader Francois Hollande, Quang read from a prepared statement and was quickly escorted from the room by staff when a question went off-script.

Rumours of Quang's illness had been circulating on social media for months, but the details are as yet unconfirmed.

He served as Deputy Minister of Public Security from 2006 to August 2011, and Minister from August 2011 to March 2016.

He was the administration's most public face at a series of high-profile events, most notably at an APEC meeting in Danang in November past year where he hosted a bevy of world leaders - including US President Donald Trump and China's Xi Jinping.

Originally from a small farming community 70 miles south of Hanoi, Quang rose through party ranks to become a police general and member of Vietnam's powerful decision-making Politburo.
