He also thanked Luxembourg for supporting the country in the removal of an EU-imposed anti-dumping tax on Viet Nam’s leather shoes.
Welcoming Luxembourg Grand Duke’s future visit to Vietnam, the PM said he hoped that the visit would be successful, helping lift the two countries’ relations to new high level.
Agreements that the two countries plan to sign during the Grand Duke’s visit will make great contributions to the development of bilateral relations, he said.
Ambassador Marc Ungeheuer said during his eight-year working term in Viet Nam, he has seen significant developments in bilateral cooperation between the two countries, leading Luxembourg to become Viet Nam’s partner instead of a donor as before.
Viet Namhas made positive progresses, especially when joining the group of middle-income countries, he said. Together with this, Viet Namand Luxembourg saw the potential for new developments in financial and aviation sector cooperation, he added.
He also affirmed Luxembourg ’s ongoing support for Viet Nam’s relations with the EU in all aspects./.
