Bern (VNA) - President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO) Nguyen Phuong Nga held a working session with the Switzerland-Vietnam Friendship Association (SVFA) in Bern, Switzerland, on November 27. 

At the event, SVFA Chairwoman Anjuska Weil expressed her delight at the development of bilateral ties between the two countries and highly evaluated Vietnam’s development achievements.

SVFA’s members proposed ideas to foster the friendship between the two nations' people, connect the Vietnamese community in Switzerland and attract young people of both countries into activities to raise their mutual understanding and solidarity. They shared with the Vietnamese people about adverse impacts from COVID-19 and wished that the two countries would overcome the pandemic soon.

The two sides also looked into ways to boost cooperative ties, especially celebrations for the 40th founding anniversary of the SVFA next year.

At a meeting on the same day between President Nguyen Xuan Phuc and the SVFA and the Vietnamese community in Switzerland, VUFO President Nguyen Phuong Nga presented an insignia “For Peace, Friendship among Nations”, the most noble distinction of the VUFO, to SVFA Chairwoman Anjuska Weil in recognition of her contributions to the solidarity and friendship between the Vietnamese and Swiss people./.
