– Party General Secretary and State President Nguyen Phu Trong has sent a message of greetings to President of Mexico Andrés Manuel López Obrador on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-Mexico diplomatic relationship.

In his message, the Party and State leader of Vietnam affirmed his wish to further strengthen and develop the friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries.

On the occasion, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh also extended greetings to the Secretary of Foreign Affairs of Mexico Marcelo Ebrard Causabón.

The friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and Mexico have been continually developing since the two countries established diplomatic ties on May 19, 1975.

The two governments recently decided to step up measures to improve the bilateral cooperation framework towards a comprehensive partnership for the interests of the two countries as well as peace and stability in the region.

Mexico is now Vietnam’s third-largest trade partner in Latin America, while Vietnam is Mexico’s eighth-largest export market in Asia-Pacific.

Two-way trade has grown 10-15 percent annually over the last decade and surpassed 6 billion USD in 2019/.
