Vietnam and Argentina have agreed to enhance their coordination and mutual support at international organisations and multilateral forums such as the United Nations and the World Trade Organisation.
The agreement was made during the June 23-25 visit to Argentina by a Vietnamese interdisciplinary delegation led by Deputy Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son.

While staying in Argentina, Deputy Minister Son had a political consultation with his Argentinean counterpart Eduardo Antonio Zuain. He met with Foreign Minister Hector Timerman and other officials of Argentina.

At the events, the Argentinean side expressed their admiration for great achievements Vietnamese people have obtained in the renewal process, contributing to heightening the country’s position in the world arena.
Host and guest spoke highly of the active development in the bilateral relations over the past time. They held that the two countries still have a lot of potential for further cooperation.

Argentinean officials said they are interested in increasing cooperation with Vietnam in higher education and a number of areas that Argentina has strength such as wind power, bio fuels, natural compressed air and medical anthropology.

The Vietnamese side expressed their wish that the Argentinean Government and relevant ministries and branches will create favourable conditions for Vietnamese businesses to invest in the South American country, especially in telecommunications.

The two sides agreed to accelerate the compilation of governmental-level agreements on telecommunication, double taxation avoidance and fighting crimes, ministerial-level deals on trade and investment promotion, and the programme on cultural cooperation for the 2013-2015 period for the signing of the documents at an early date.

They held that the global economic crisis has created opportunities for developing countries to boost linkages within the framework of South-South cooperation.

On this occasion, officials from the Argentinean Ministry of Foreign Affairs shared the country’s experience in joining the multilateral commercial system, international economic integration and Free Trade Agreement talks and settling disputes within the framework of the WTO.-VNA
