Accordingly, the two sides will step up the exchange of delegations at all levels, consolidate cooperation mechanisms and organise the second deputy foreign minister-level political consultation in the time ahead.
They will also work to foster cooperation in economy, trade and investment by utilising strengths of each side and providing mutual support in spheres, such as agriculture, garment-textile and electronic components of Vietnam, and tourism and fisheries of El Salvador, while facilitating the exchange of delegations of businesses.
Welcoming El Salvador Foreign Minister Tinoco’s first visit to Vietnam, Foreign Minister Son spoke highly of El Salvador’s opening of its Embassy in Vietnam on this occasion, calling it an important step contributing to strengthening the bilateral ties.
