Algiers (VNA) - The Embassy of Vietnam in Algeria and the National Archives Centre of the African country on October 28 held a photo exhibition marking the 58th anniversary of the two countries' diplomatic ties (October 28).

About 50 photos were on display, featuring significant milestones of the bilateral relations. 

They included photos of a diplomatic note of Vietnam dated September 26, 1958, recognising Algeria’s provisional government, those on visits of the countries’ high-level leaders as well as on the development of Vietnamese traditional martial arts in the African nation.

Traditional dishes of Vietnam were also served at the event.

Addressing the exhibition, Ambassador to Algeria Nguyen Thanh Vinh highlighted the bilateral relations over the past 58 years, and expressed his belief that with sound political foundation and determination of both countries' leaders, multifaceted cooperation between the two nations will continue to thrive in the coming time.

Boumediene Guennad, Director General for Asia and Oceania Division at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Algeria, spoke highly of Vietnam's socio-economic achievements after more than 30 years of Doi moi (Renewal), and believed that the bilateral ties will be further consolidated and expanded in various spheres, given that Algeria is rolling out important reform policies.

On the occasion, the Trade Office of Vietnam in Algeria joined hands with the Embassy to introduce Vietnamese goods to Algerian firms operating in farm produce, foodstuff, fisheries, garment-textile and footwear, among others.

A webinar on Vietnam-Algeria trade is slated for November 4, according to the trade office./.
