Friendship exchanges between Vietnamese and Indian peoples have boosted cooperative ties and the long-lasting traditional friendship between the two countries.

Vice Chairman of the Vietnam-India Friendship Association (VIFA) Nguyen Thanh Xuan highlighted the significance of friendship exchanges at a meeting to mark India ’s 64 th Independence Day in Ho Chi Minh City on August 11.

She also affirmed that the Vietnamese Government and people always highly valued Indian friends’ support and assistance for Vietnam in the country’s two fights against colonialism and imperialism, as well as in the process of national construction and development.

The Vietnamese Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO) in cooperation with the VIFA, the Consulate-General and Business Association of India in Ho Chi Minh City have recently organised a range of cultural exchange events to strengthen the Vietnam-India friendship and cooperative ties.

The events created favourable conditions for Vietnamese and Indian businesses to seek opportunities for investment, production and business in both countries./.
