VOV.VN - Vietnamese Ambassador to Switzerland Le Linh Lan has hailed the growing partnership between the two nations across multiple fields such as economics, trade, investment and tourism at a recent workshop held in Geneva.
She highlighted Vietnam’s major economic and diplomatic achievements in 2019 and laid stress on on the country’s priority given to promoting multilateral diplomacy in 2020.
The Vietnamese diplomat shared Vietnam’s priorities when assuming the role as the United Nations Security Council’s non-permanent member and ASEAN Chair in this year amid regional and global complicated developments.
Lan responded to many questions regarding the process of negotiations of free trade agreements between the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) (including Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein) and Vietnam, as well as Switzerland’s investment difficulties in Vietnam in high technology, and the differences between Vietnamese and Swiss educational systems and culture.
The workshop is part of the symposium week on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations under the project “Explore ASEAN” launched by the FHNW School of Business in 2001.
