At a reception for the newly-appointed ambassador after presenting the credentials, President Isaac Herzog showed his interest in boosting bilateral relations, particularly on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic relations in 2023.

The President expected to step up people-to-people exchanges with Vietnam through tourist and business visits, and that the two sides can enhance academic exchanges to look at complex strategic competition among global powers and current insecurity.

He stressed that Vietnam has a very important position in Israel’s foreign policy.

In the coming time, he will continue to meet the new Vietnamese ambassador to discuss ways to bolster relations between the two countries, the President said.

For his part, Ambassador Ly Duc Trung expressed his honour at taking the position, affirming that he will make active contributions to boost friendly relations and cooperation between the two countries.

He emphasized that the two countries will mark the 30th anniversary of diplomatic ties in 2023, therefore he expects the two sides will increase all-level delegation exchanges and organize celebrations on this occasion to take their bilateral ties to a new height.

Mr. Trung believed that people-to-people exchanges and new opportunities for cooperation for the business communities of Vietnam and Israel will be promoted after the two countries sign bilateral free trade and labour cooperation agreements and open direct flights./.
