Speaking at the meeting, VAFIW President Le Thi Hop thanked the Ambassador of Vietnam to Mongolia Doan Khanh Tam, and the Vietnamese community for the warm welcome.

VAFIW Vice President, Ambassador Nguyen Thi Hoi added that, as a member of INWES-APNN, VAFIW has always actively participated in empowering women scientists and engineers. After the cooperation event with the Women's Union of Vietnam to successfully host the APNN 2018 Annual Conference in Hanoi, the global reputation of Vietnamese female intellectuals has been significantly enhanced.
The INWES-APNN 2024 Conference is scheduled to be held in Vietnam in October. This is an opportunity for Vietnamese female scientists and engineers to meet their colleagues from foreign countries. They can exchange knowledge and experiences on gender equality, food safety, climate change, climate change, and sustainable development. Also, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the two countries' diplomatic relations establishment, VAFIW hopes to join in organizing cultural and art exchange activities.

On the Mongolian side, the Standing Member of the Executive Committee of the Mongolia-Vietnam Friendship Association C.Sodnomtseren affirmed VAFIW's role as a bridge for businesses and people from the two countries. The Mongolian diplomat agreed that the Vietnamese Embassy in Mongolia, the Vietnam Association for Intellectual Women (VAFIW), and the Friendship Association of the two sides must work closely together in promoting cooperation between female scientists and engineers of the two countries, especially in education and culture exchange.
Agreeing with the guests at the meeting, Ambassador of Vietnam to Mongolia Doan Khanh Tam said that Mongolia attaches great importance to empowering women and promoting gender equality. By putting women and girls at the center, Mongolia successfully organized the first Women's Foreign Ministers' Meeting in Ulaanbaatar from June 29-30, 2023, at the initiative of Mongolian Foreign Minister B.Battsetseg. As a result, the "Ulaanbaatar Declaration" was issued in Mongolia, which affirmed the leadership role of women in preventing and resolving conflicts by peaceful means.
Ambassador Tam highly appreciated the people-to-people diplomacy activities of the parties in the past time and expressed his belief that in the coming time, such activities will transmit enthusiasm to future generations of Mongolia as well as Vietnam, contributing to strengthening solidarity, friendship, and cooperation between the peoples.
Regarding the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, the Vietnamese Ambassador said that the two governments are planning many exchange activities to promote political, economic, commercial, cultural, and tourism relations. They will focus on bringing practical benefits to the people of the two countries.
In particular, the official visit to Vietnam of Mongolian President U. Khurelsukh in November 2023 will be an important milestone in the history of the two countries' relations, contributing to promoting the bilateral relationship to a new height.
