The two countries have promoted cooperation in such fields as politics, economy, culture, society, education and training.

Ambassador Le Viet Duyen reviewed milestones and achievements in the two countries’ bilateral relations.

The two sides regularly exchange high-level delegations, particularly the visit to Vietnam in 2022 by the Venezuelan Deputy Foreign Minister in charge of Asia, Middle East and Oceania Capaya Rodriguez.

The two countries have signed more than 50 cooperation agreements in fields as well as implemented cooperation mechanisms and bilateral cooperation projects, particularly those in agriculture and aquaculture.
