Hanoi exchange promotes Vietnam – Czech Republic friendship

Hanoi (VNA) – An exchange programme on the Vietnam – Czech Republic friendship was held on October 25 on the occasion of the 105th anniversary of the Czech National Day (October 28, 1918 – 2023).

The event, organised by the Vietnam – Czech Republic Friendship Association’s  chapter in Hanoi (VCFA Hanoi),  aims to strengthen and deepen the traditional and extensive cooperation between the two countries, especially in foreign affairs and people-to-people diplomacy.

Addressing the event, Chairman of the VCFA Hanoi Banh Tien Long highlighted the fine development of the bilateral relations across fields, saying that the two countries signed many cooperation agreements in various areas.

According to Long, tens of thousands of Vietnamese students and citizens have studied and worked in the Czech Republic. The bilateral economic and trade cooperation has also recorded remarkable progress with two-way trade in 2022 reaching 828 million USD, up nearly 12% from the previous year.

With a series of specific activities to promote people-to-people and cultural exchanges between the two countries, the VCFA Hanoi has contributed to bolstering the bilateral relations, Long stressed.

Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Vietnam Hynek Kmoníček expressed his joy at the fruitful relations between the two countries, saying that his country will implement many important projects in Vietnam in the time to come such as opening an automobile assembly plant in Quang Ninh province, launching flights between the Czech Republic and Phu Quoc island in Kien Giang province, and opening a Czech cultural centre in Vietnam.

A photo exhibition spotlighting the development of the Vietnam – Czech relations was arranged in the framework of the programme./.
