During her stay, the ambassador held a talk on Vietnamese development in the context of globalisation and Vietnam-Slovak relations at the University of SS. Cyril and Methodius, drawing the attendance of the university’s rector Jozef Matus and students from the Faculty of Social Sciences.
In a separate talk with ambassador Nguyet, the university’s rector wanted to cooperate with a Vietnamese university through teacher and student exchanges, adding that his university is willing to share experience in public administration management, European studies and social consultancy with Vietnam.
The Vietnamese Ambassador was introduced to Trnava’s potential in agricultural production, car assembly and electronic production during a meeting with Eva Tomankova from the Trnava Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Eva Tomankova hoped to coordinate with the Vietnamese Embassy to organise a business forum presenting the investment climate in Vietnam as well as Trnava’s high-tech park.
Vietnam and Slovakia have treasured their traditional friendship and multi-faceted cooperation over the past 65 years. Bilateral trade hit over 1.2 billion USD and Slovakia is currently the biggest Central East-European investor in Vietnam.
In 2016, the two countries have agreed to organise the second session of the Intergovernmental Committee on Economic Cooperation in the capital of Bratislava./.
