At the event, Vice Chairman of the Viet Nam - Hungary Friendship Association in HCM City Nguyen Quang Vinh highlighted the robust development of the traditional friendship between the two countries over the past seven decade. In particular, they lifted their ties to a comprehensive partnership in 2018.

As a result, bilateral cooperation has been promoted across the fields, from politics, economy-trade, to culture, education-training, tourism, and security-defence.

Vinh thanked the Hungarian Consulate General for its collaboration and support in organising people-to-people exchange activities in Ho Chi Minh City, contributing to enhancing the ties between the two peoples.

Hungarian Consul General Szojka Éva Szivia congratulated Viet Nam over its success in the fight against COVID-19. She said although planned activities to celebrate the anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties could not be held due to the pandemic, the two countries can focus on cooperative opportunities in the future, especially in potential fields such as trade and education-training.

She pledged to intensify cooperation with HCM City in economy, education, culture, innovation and people-to-people diplomacy, towards the fifth anniversary of the re-establishment of the Hungarian Consulate General in the city.
