NDO/VNA – The Vietnamese Journalists Association (VJA) and the Foreign Press Association in Switzerland and Liechtenstein (APES) have agreed to extend the two-year cooperation agreement they reached in late 2017.

The consensus was reached during a meeting between VJA President Thuan Huu and APES President Jean Musy as part of a VJA delegation’s working visit to Switzerland from June 29-July 4.

Accordingly, the two sides will continue delegation exchange. In November 2017, an APES delegation headed by its President Jean Musy paid the first-ever visit to Vietnam.

While in Geneva, the Vietnamese journalists had a working session with Delegate to International Geneva Olivier Coutau, who briefed his guests on the history, politics and administrative system of the Geneva city and state.

The Vietnamese delegation also met with representatives from the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs and the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs in Berne.

They talked about the relationship between Vietnam and Switzerland, including bilateral trade and economic ties.

At a meeting with the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation, the Vietnamese journalists were briefed on Switzerland’s vocational training and education.

During their visit, the VJA delegation also visited the headquarters of the UN in Geneva.
