Ambassador Luis Pablo Maria Beltramino held that Viet Nam and Argentina’s economies are complementary to each other, noting his country is ready to diversify products to meet demand in Viet Nam which, in turn, also has many high-quality products such as technological devices, apparel, and footwear, popular in this South American nation.
Beltramino also suggested some potential areas in which the two countries can enhance partnerships in the future, including high technology and satellite services for peaceful purposes, which are also the fields Argentina is strong in.
Promoting cooperation between the two sides’ football federations and clubs is also a good idea which will help develop not only this sport in Viet Nam but also bilateral relations, according to him.
As Viet Nam and Argentina will celebrate the 50th founding anniversary of their diplomatic ties in 2023, they should organise many activities marking this occasion, he suggested, expressing his hope that Ha Noi will assist his embassy to successfully organise an Argentinian culture week this May.
For his part, Vice Chairman Dung noted Ha Noi always prioritises cultural development, including cultural diplomacy, and that Viet Nam also holds a lot of potential for cooperating with Argentina in other aspects such as trade, economy, and investment.
Highly valuing Argentina’s success in hi-tech agriculture, the official said he hopes Ambassador Beltramino will help connect Ha Noi with Argentinian localities to develop hi-tech agriculture.
He also affirmed that the local administration will actively support the embassy to successfully hold the coming Argentinian cultural week as well as other major events.
The host voiced his hope that the Ambassador and Embassy will coordinate with Ha Noi to propose cooperation activities for the time ahead, particularly during the 50th anniversary of the countries’ diplomatic relations next year, thereby contributing to bilateral connections.
