Attending the event were Israeli governmental officials and representatives of the Vietnamese community and friends. Vietnamese Ambassador to Israel Cao Tran Quoc Hai highlighted Vietnam’s remarkable achievements over the decades.
He said the country had overcome many challenges to maintain an annual average economic growth of 7%, thus significantly improving people’s living standards and ensuring national security, politics and social stability. The country has been transformed from a food importer to one of the leading exporters in the world for rice, coffee, aquatic products, cashew nuts and pepper, he said, adding that many of these products have become popular in Israel.
Regarding relations between Vietnam and Israel, Ambassador Hai said the two sides have witnessed significant strides in co-operation in various fields, including defence, security, trade, agriculture, science and technology. Both countries have conducted high-level delegation exchanges, including visits to Vietnam by Israeli Presidents Shimon Peres in 2011 and Reuven Rivlin in 2017.
