HÀ NỘI – Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico began his official visit to Việt Nam at the invitation of Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc yesterday.
This is Prime Minister Robert Fico’s second visit to Việt Nam, which is made after he won local elections again in March 2016.
He is scheduled to meet with Vietnamese top leaders to deliberate ways and means to ratchet up the traditional friendship and multi-dimensional affiliation between the two countries.
Through the visit, the two countries expect to step up connections across economics, trade, investment and education-training.
Regional and international issues of shared concerns will be discussed.
Việt Nam and Slovakia established diplomatic relations in 1950.
The two countries’ trade hit over US$1.2 billion and Slovakia is currently the biggest Central European investor in Việt Nam.
In 2016, the two countries will organise the second session of the Intergovernmental Committee on Economic Cooperation in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava. — VNS
