Ambassador meets with Argentinean congressmen
The AVPFG was established by the House of Representatives of Argentina in the context of important developments in relations between the two countries in recent years.
Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Argentina Thai Van Lung described the establishment of the group as a new step in bilateral ties and an important tool in promoting them.
The diplomat expressed his hope the group would further expand its operations and help strengthen the growing friendship and cooperation between the two countries’ people and their legislative bodies.
The President of the organisation, Julia Argentina Perie, stated that her group will work to contribute to consolidating friendship and promoting cultural exchange and trade between the two countries.
According to the Argentinean Customs Office, total annual Argentina-Vietnam trade hit a record high of 399.79 million USD in 2008. But this year, trade activities skyrocketed, surpassing last year’s total in just the first half of 2009.
