At a reception for Ambassador of New Zealand Tredene Cherie Dobson, the President said he hopes that the ambassador will raise initiatives to promote cooperation between the two countries in the time ahead, especially when the bilateral relationship is developing intensively and extensively in the spirit of the strategic partnership.

He called on New Zealand to share its experience in COVID-19 combat, and suggested the two sides step up high-level visits after the pandemic is put under control.

The two countries also should foster trade ties, particularly the export of fruits, Phuc said, suggesting New Zealand further assist Vietnam in education, especially English language teaching.
 
Vietnam wishes to tighten coordination with New Zealand and relevant parties in realising the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and accelerating the ratification and implementation of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) in the coming time, he added.

The ambassador pledged to make every effort to contribute to strengthening the bilateral relations, and support Vietnamese firms to access the New Zealand market.

Meeting with Argentina’s Ambassador Luis Pablo Maria Beltramino, Phuc wished that the two countries will enhance all-level delegation exchanges and bring into full play dialogue and cooperation mechanisms to advance the bilateral comprehensive partnership to a new high.

The President called for joint efforts to press ahead with negotiations of a free trade agreement between Vietnam and the Southern Common Market (Mercosur), and suggested both sides maintain their mutual support and cooperation at multilateral forums.

The ambassador said he hopes to coordinate with Vietnamese agencies to elevate the bilateral ties to a new level.

At a meeting with Pakistani Ambassador Samina Mehtab, the State leader expressed his hope that the diplomat will have measures to forge economic and trade ties between the two sides.

Vietnam and Pakistan should optimise their strengths and beef up cooperation in trade, while tightening their collaboration at regional and multilateral forums, the President suggested.

Mehtab said she hopes that Vietnam would serve as a bridge between Pakistan and ASEAN, and the two countries will intensify tourism cooperation.

Receiving Romanian Ambassador Cristina Romila, Phuc said Vietnam always attaches importance to the traditional friendship with Romania, and bears in mind the country’s valuable support during Vietnam’s struggles for national independence and national development.

He also praised Romania for its efforts in pushing ahead with the signing of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the EU-Vietnam Investment Protection Agreement (EVIPA) when Romania held the rotating presidency of the Council of the European Union.

Phuc asked the ambassador to convey his invitation to the Romanian President to visit Vietnam at an appropriate time.

Romila, in reply, affirmed that Vietnam remains Romania’s important partner, and congratulated the Southeast Asian nation on its achievements in the pandemic fight.
