In the next tenure, the association pledges to spare no efforts to help Romanian people better their understanding of the land and people of Vietnam as well as the Vietnamese Party and State’s internal and external policies, and renovation accomplishments.

It will focus on expanding Vietnam-Romania cooperation in economy, culture, education, science-technology, and environmental protection.
