NDO/VNA – Vietnamese Ambassador to Italy Nguyen Thi Bich Hue has paid a working visit to the Veneto region to promote economic and trade cooperation between the two sides.

During her meeting with Roberto Marcato, councillor for economic development of Veneto, the two sides consented to actively implement the cooperation agreement reached by Vietnam’s southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau and Veneto in 2018, especially in tourism, seaports, renewable energy and digital economy.

The two sides will join hands in preparing for the organisation of the meeting of the Vietnam-Italy joint committee for economic cooperation, and other socio-economic events to mark the 50th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries, and the 10th anniversary of the strategic partnership, especially through the online form.

Hue also met with Tiziana Lippiello, Rector of Ca' Foscari University, and Albrecht Benno, Rector of Iuav University of Venice, during which they compared notes on collaboration in tertiary education and scientific research.

On this occasion, the ambassador attended a ceremony to introduce a book on Vietnam’s and Cuba’s experience in the COVID-19 combat, which was organised by the chapters of the Italy-Vietnam and Italy-Cuba friendship associations in Veneto.

She also handed over a certificate of merit of the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry's State Commission for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs to Pham Hung Vuong, former President of the Vietnamese Students’ Association in Italy, for his contributions to connecting students of the two countries.

Nearly 100 Vietnamese students are studying in universities in the Italian region.
