Vietnamese Ambassador to India Nguyen Thanh Hai has presented a decision to appoint Velagapudi Kavitha Dutt, Joint Managing Director at Kcp Ltd, as the Honorary Consul of Vietnam to Tamil Nadu state, VNA reported.
Speaking at a ceremony on January 16 in Chennai, the Vietnamese diplomat said the honorary consul will play an important role in promoting economic, tourism, culture cooperation and people-to-people exchange between Vietnam and India in general and Tamil Nadu in particular, and in effectively implementing Vietnam’s citizen protection work in the Indian state.
“We are trying to promote bilateral partnership further for the benefit of the people of both countries, particularly the people of Tamil Nadu. Investments from Vietnam to India and vice versa are on the increasing trajectory. Many micro, small and medium-sized companies (MSMEs) and big companies are committed to making more investments in Vietnam. Interactions in terms of education and culture, especially, with respect to Tamil Nadu, have increased drastically as well,” he added.
After the pandemic, there have been many direct flights from many cities in India like New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Ahmedabad to Vietnam, he said and added that he hoped Chennai too has direct flights in future.
He expressed his belief that Dutt will well fulfill her duties, contributing to strengthening the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries.

She pledged to do her utmost to support the Vietnamese community in the state, contributing to promoting Vietnamese tourism, culture, country and people; and continue to explore cooperation potential between Tamil Nadu and other localities of Vietnam, especially economic cooperation.
