VN-India ties strong: seminar

September, 22/2017

The traditional ties between Viet Nam and India are developing in a range of areas, from co-operation in defence-security to trade and investment to people-to-people exchanges, Indian Ambassador to Viet Nam Parvathaneni Harish said at a seminar on the prospects of bilateral ties in Ha Noi yesterday.

He noted the two countries elevated bilateral relations to comprehensive strategic partnership status during the official visit to Vi?t Nam by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in September 2016.

India considers ASEAN the centre of its Act East policy. Viet Nam is an important pillar within this policy, the diplomat said.

President of the Viet Nam Academy of Social Sciences Nguyen Quang Thu?n said since Viet Nam and India gained independence in 1945 and 1947 respectively, bilateral ties have been nurtured continuously.

He noted that Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was the first foreign leader to visit Viet Nam after the Southeast Asian country achieved the historic Dien Bien Phu victory in 1945.

Trade relations were also high on the seminar’s agenda, with attention to the obstacles that hinder bilateral trade and solutions to those challenges

Director of the Institute for India and Southwest Asia Studies Nguyen Xuan Trung said there are three groups of barriers in Viet Nam-India trade relations: differences of culture, religion and institutions.

He suggested the two sides expand the legal foundation and increase the efficiency of trade promotion activities.
