HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam considers Mozambique a loyal friend and priority partner in Africa, President Trần Đại Quang told outgoing Mozambican Ambassador to Việt Nam Gamiliel Sepul Veda Joao Munguambe during a reception in Hà Nội yesterday.
The Vietnamese leader lauded the ambassador’s contributions to bilateral ties during his tenure, saying that both sides exchanged more than 30 delegations at all levels and carried out a number of successful projects such as Viettel’s telecom joint-venture in Mozambique and a US$2 million project on joint research on food crops.
He wished that the two countries would effectively build on the past achievements to extend ties to farm produce processing, transport, mining and education.
The host expressed his desire that the ambassador, with his wealth of diplomatic experience and knowledge about Việt Nam, would continue introducing business opportunities in Việt Nam, thus contributing to boosting ties between Việt Nam and African countries in general and with Mozambique in particular.
Munguambe, for his part, expressed his honour to be the first Mozambican Ambassador when the African country opened the embassy in Việt Nam in 2012.
He noted that potentials of the two nations remain huge and there are many opportunities to further raise two-way trade. — VNS
