– The Vietnamese Embassy in China held a ceremony to mark the 74th anniversary of Vietnam’s National Day in Beijing on September 11 with the participation of Chinese officials and representatives of foreign diplomatic corps and the Vietnamese expatriate community.

In his speech, Vietnamese Ambassador to China Dang Minh Khoi recalled the historic moment of the nation 74 years ago when President Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence, founding the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam).

Since then, under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam, tireless efforts of Vietnamese people and valuable support from international friends, Vietnam has gained many important achievements in the struggle for national liberation and reunification and in the cause of national development, he said.

He took the occasion to express his delight at the growth of Vietnam-China collaboration across economy-trade, investment, culture, tourism, and people-to-people exchange.

According to the diplomat, Vietnam has been the third biggest trade partner of China in ASEAN for three consecutive years. The two countries have maintained meetings and visits between their high-level leaders.

The two sides have agreed to maintain peace, stability, and manage and handle satisfactorily disagreement at sea. They are working to organise activities for the celebration of the 70th anniversary of their diplomatic relations in 2020.

At the ceremony, international visitors were treated to Vietnamese culture and traditional cuisine./.
