They shared their delight at the growing ties between Viet Nam and Panama, especially through the implementation of cooperation mechanisms. They concurred to continue to effectively promote the deputy ministerial-level political consultation and Joint Committee on economic, trade, and investment cooperation mechanisms, as well as face-to-face and online meetings between the two countries.
Vietnamese Minister of Foreign Affairs Bui Thanh Son proposed that Panama support the protection of the interests of Vietnamese citizens living, studying, and working in Panama, and effectively coordinate to make the country a transit place for Vietnamese products in the Latin American region. Vietnam will act as a bridge for Panamanian products to enter the Southeast Asian market, he added.
Son affirmed that Vietnam is keen on bolstering the traditional friendship and all-around cooperation with Panama in a substantive and effective manner, Nhan Dan cited.
