The President said the bilateral relations are growing fruitfully in all field and highlighted the signing of agreements to form a strategic partnership in climate change response and water resource management in 2010, and in agriculture and food security in 2014 as an effective cooperation model, thus promoting the Netherlands’ images and contributing to Vietnam’s sustainable development.

The political trust between Vietnam and the Netherlands has been strengthened, while the two nations have become an important economic, trade and investment partner of each other, and seen progress in educational and cultural cooperation, he said.

President Quang said, built up on the achievements, Vietnam and the Netherlands still hold great potential to expand collaboration so as to push relations to new heights. 

Having lauded the Netherlands’ position and role in the EU, the President thanked the Dutch Government’s support for the early ratification of the EU- Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EUVFTA).

The diplomat said she was honoured to witness milestones in the bilateral relations, including celebrations of the 45th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties and the working visit to Vietnam by Queen of the Netherlands Máxima Zorreguieta Cerruti in May 2017 as the UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development.

She said the Netherlands wants to focus on strengthening economic, trade and investment ties with Vietnam. The Netherlands is the biggest European investor in Vietnam and the third biggest trade partner of Vietnam among European countries.
