HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam hopes more local companies will find business opportunities in Sudan.
Vũ Hồng Nam, Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs expressed this hope as he affirmed the importance of traditional co-operation with Sudan at a reception to celebrate the 61st anniversary of Sudan’s independence.
The reception, held by the Embassy of Sudan, also celebrated the 47th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries on August 26, 1969.
At the event, Ambassador of Sudan to Việt Nam Sayed Altayeb Ahmed highlighted the developments in bilateral co-operation between the two countries over the last few years and said he hoped to further enhance bilateral relations.
At the reception held on Thursday, invitees also tried Sudanese henna drawings on their hands. They also had the opportunity to observe a miniature of a traditional house of the Sudanese people, called gottia — a single room with round mud walls and a conical straw roof. — VNS
