The celebration in Hanoi commemorated the 4,355th anniversary of the founding of ancient Korea, Gojoseon.
In his remarks at the event, Standing Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Minh Vu expressed his confidence that with their efforts and determination, the RoK Government and people will continue to successfully implement their goals, including the Global Pivotal State (GPS) vision, thereby helping to enhance the nation’s international position and promote peace, stability, cooperation, and development in the region and the world.
The diplomat stressed that the Vietnam-RoK comprehensive strategic partnership is developing strongly, practically, and comprehensively. To Vietnam, the RoK currently holds the top position in terms of foreign direct investment, second place in official development assistance (ODA) cooperation and tourism, and third position in trade and labor cooperation.
Vietnam is a key partner of the RoK in implementing the Korea-ASEAN Solidarity Initiative (KASI) and the RoK’s Indo-Pacific Strategy.
He held that there is still large room for further development of the bilateral relationship in the coming time, given the need for economic recovery after the Covid-19 pandemic and major global trends such as the fourth Industrial Revolution, digital transformation, green growth, and optimization of supply chains.
Vietnam consistently attaches importance to its relations with the RoK and is ready to collaborate closely in further developing the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership, the deputy minister affirmed.
Vietnam will continue to support the RoK in playing a greater international role and making positive contributions to maintaining peace, stability, cooperation, and development in the region and the world.
