According to Le Thi Thu Hang, deputy minister of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam, France's National Day celebration in Vietnam this year is also the 50th anniversary of the two countries' establishment of diplomatic relations and 10 years of strategic partnership.
After half a century, the relationship between Vietnam and France made important changes, with the cultivation and cooperation of generations of leaders, and people of the two countries.
On behalf of the Government and people of Vietnam, Deputy Minister Le Thi Thu Hang thanked the French Government for timely donating 5.5 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine to help Vietnam overcome difficulties caused by Covid-19.
Le Thi Thu Hang believes that the strategic partnership between the two countries will be strengthening in the coming time, especially when the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) is effectively implemented, and the Investment Protection Agreement (EVIPA) is ratified, helping promote, increase investment and trade - the mainstay of Vietnam-France relations.
