During the reception, Minh asked Slovenia to urge the European Union (EU) and its members to ratify the EU – Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and EU- Vietnam Investment Protection Agreement (EVIPA) at an early date in order to deliver practical benefits to the signatories as a means of further strengthening bilateral trade.
The Vietnamese diplomat expressed gratitude to the guest for offering condolences over the death of 39 Vietnamese in the UK, and thanked Slovenia for supporting Vietnam’s bid to become a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the 2020-2021 term.
On this occasion, the two sides consented to intensify all level delegation exchange, to offer favourable conditions for their businesses to cooperate and invest in the fields of their strength and demand, and to closely cooperate and offer mutual support at multilateral forums.
