Vietnam and Poland have agreed to push forward their bilateral trade cooperation.
Vietnamese State President Tran Dai Quang held talks with his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda in Hanoi on Tuesday, as part of the latter’s state visit to the Southeast Asian country from November 27 to 30.
During the conversation, President Quang said that the visit of President Duda would create an impetus for more effective and stronger friendship and bilateral cooperation between the two nations.
He took the opportunity to praise the opening of a representative office of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency in Ho Chi Minh City, saying that Vietnam had always provided favorable conditions for Polish businesses to invest and operate in.
According to the Vietnamese head of state, Hanoi has always had a focus on developing its ties with countries in Central and Eastern Europe, and Poland is a priority partner.
Replying to his host, President Duda expressed his hope that documents signed during his visit would create a foundation to step up collaboration between the two countries across multiple fields.
Two-way trade revenue will reach US$2 million, he said, believing that the figure would increase in the coming years based on the outcomes of his ongoing Vietnam visit as well as the upcoming visit to Poland by President Quang.
The two leaders discussed measures to bolster the two nations’ economic and trade cooperation.
Poland will soon disburse an official development assistance package worth EUR250 million ($296.3 million) to Vietnam in line with a framework agreement on financial cooperation signed during the visit.
Following the talks, the two presidents witnessed the signing of several cooperation documents in the fields of finance, education, and training among others.
The Polish leader also met with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong on Tuesday.
