Addressing the event, Vietnamese Ambassador Pham Thi Kim Hoa wished them a New Year of happiness and prosperity.

She also highlighted the meaning of the Tet festival as well as the outstanding achievements the Party, State and people of Vietnam have made in socio-economic and cultural development as well as external relations in 2022.

The diplomat noted that Vietnam and Brazil have seen growing ties in various fields, especially economy and trade, opening up new opportunities for lifting their relations to a new height in the coming time.

Last year, two-way trade reached nearly 6.8 billion USD, the highest among Latin American countries.
