Speaking at the gather, Chairman of the association Nguyen Dang Cuong said Poland was one of the earliest countries to recognise and establish diplomatic relations with the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

The European country supported Vietnam in wartime as well as in the cause of national defence and building, he said.

It continually supported Vietnam during the two resistance wars and the following national construction.

More than 4,000 Vietnamese students and officers were trained in Poland, serving as a bridge to nurture the friendship and traditional relations between the two countries.

In recent years, bilateral connections have been increasingly enhanced via mutual visits by their leaders and cooperation programmes in economy, culture, education, and people-to-people diplomacy, according to him.

Cuong also took this occasion to thank former leaders of the friendship association and the Polish Embassy in Vietnam for helping the HCM City’s Vietnam-Poland Friendship Association fulfil its role as a bridge linking people of HCM City and Poland so as to contribute to the two countries’ ties.

People of Vietnam in general and HCM City in particular always want and will do their best to further develop the traditional relationship between the two nations, he added.

Polish Ambassador Wojciech Gerwel expressed his delight at the strides in the nations’ traditional friendship, noting that they have developed their friendship and cooperation on the basis of government-to-government links, the Vietnamese people who used to study and work in Poland, and the Vietnamese community in his homeland.

Congratulating the Vietnam-Poland Friendship Association of HCM City on its founding anniversary, he voiced his hope that those who used to study and work in Poland will continue helping with bilateral friendship and cooperation.

Poland is currently the largest trade partner of Vietnam in Central and Eastern Europe with bilateral trade topping 3 billion USD in 2019. Vietnam mainly exports electronic products, leather footwear, apparel, and farm produce to Poland.

In addition, the two sides hold potential for cooperation in the areas Poland has strength in like software development, information technology, heavy industry, and agricultural equipment./.
