Speaking at the event held on February 24, Vietnamese Ambassador to Bangladesh Nguyen Manh Cuong reviewed Vietnam's outstanding achievements last year despite global headwinds including conflicts, climate change, and economic slowdown in parts of the world.

He said that foreign political activities between Vietnam and Bangladesh last year were deployed regularly and effectively. In particular, the visit to Bangladesh by National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue marked an important milestone in the two countries’ relations, especially as they celebrated the 50th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations.

The Ambassador added that the total two-way trade turnover reached 1.05 billion USD while Bangladesh's exports to Vietnam last year reached 130 million USD, a record level to date.

President of the Workers Party of Bangladesh (WPB) Rashed Khan Menon expressed his impression of Vietnam’s achievements, saying he is happy to join the overseas Vietnamese community in Bangladesh celebrating Tet.

He believed that bilateral cooperation will reap new achievements in many fields in the coming time.

At the event, participants enjoyed the Tet atmosphere with typical Vietnamese food, customs and greetings.

The event not only creates an opportunity for overseas Vietnamese in Bangladesh to gather together but also introduce the traditional Vietnamese culture to Bangladeshi and international friends./.
