President Nguyen Xuan Phuc hosted receptions in Hanoi on June 13 for Croatian and Senegalese ambassadors who presented their letters of credence.
At a meeting with Croatian Ambassador Ivan Velimir Starcevic, President Phuc affirmed the importance Vietnam attaches to consolidating and developing friendship and cooperation with Croatia.
He thanked the Croatian government for donating 60,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses to Vietnam last year, which, the leader said indicated the sound traditional friendship between the two nations.
Vietnam is Croatia’s biggest partner in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and that as a EU member, Croatia will make greater effort to accelerate the implementation of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), Starcevic told his guest.
He also suggested Vietnam and Croatia augment cooperation in tourism.
President Phuc asked both sides to intensify the exchange of delegations at all levels in a bid to bolster cooperation in multiple fields, thus deepening and raising the efficiency of the EU-Vietnam comprehensive partnership and cooperation.
The Vietnamese State leader assured Vietnam’s readiness to help Croatia foster its relations with ASEAN and its member states.
The Vietnam-Croatia trade value of only roughly US$100 million is still from matching full their potential, he said , while urging the two countries to double the revenue in the next five years.
Vietnam is willing to offer optimal conditions for Croatian firms to study the Vietnamese market and invest in the country, particularly in renewable energy, transport infrastructure, tourism, environment, food processing, tourism and sports, he said, reported the VOV.
At the reception for Senegalese Ambassador Abdoulaye Barro, President Phuc highlighted Senegal as an important traditional African partner of Vietnam.

President Phuc expressed his hope that Senegal will successfully perform the rotating presidency of the African Union (AU) in 2022, and thanked the country for its support for the proposal of establishing the official relationship between Vietnam and the AU.
Barro lauded Vietnam’s role in international organisations and the United Nations General Assembly, as well as its important role in Southeast Asia and Asia at large, said the Nhandan.
Senegal wants to learn from Vietnam’s experience in agricultural development, he said, adding that Senegal stands ready to support Vietnam in the international arena and always opens door for Vietnamese investors and products.
President Phuc suggested Vietnam and Senegal further support each other at multilateral forums, particularly the UN and the International Organisation of La Francophonie.
The two countries should increase trade and investment exchanges, and coordinate to review and promote the signing of important agreements in order to create a legal framework for the bilateral cooperation, he said.
President Phuc also noted his hope that the Senegalese government will further support the Vietnamese community in the host country.
