In recent years, cooperation between Ben Tre province and Tulcea country, Hue and Iasi cities, Da Nang and Timisoara cities, the PetroVietnam University and the Oil and Gas University of Ploiesti, along with trade promotion activities, cultural and people-to-people exchanges have helped intensified Vietnam-Romania relations in multiple spheres, Thang added.
Addressing the ceremony, Romanian Ambassador to Vietnam Valeriu Arteni thanked people of Vietnam, including HCM City, for their sound sentiments towards his country, adding that with many similarities, the Romanian and Vietnamese people are becoming closer, helping to bolster their multifaceted cooperation.
He appreciated activities of the Vietnam-Romania Friendship Association over the last 26 years. The organisation and its local subsidiaries, particularly the HCM City chapter, have continually supported the Romanian Embassy and actively helped to strengthen the two countries’ traditional friendship.
