Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Argentina Duong Quoc Thanh said that in 2023, Vietnam-Argentina relations witnessed steps of development with the high-level visit of National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The year 2024 is expected to see many important visits by Vietnamese leaders, and representatives from ministries, and localities to Argentina to further promote potential for cooperation between the two countries.

According to the Ambassador, the Vietnamese community in Argentina numbers about 230 people, mostly living in northern Argentina and Buenos Aires province. Recently, many of them have returned to their homeland on the occasion of the Tet festival.
