Vietnamese Ambassador to Austria Vu Viet Anh highlighted the growing relations between the two countries over the past 45 years, especially in trade and economy.

Austria has become the fifth largest trade partner of Vietnam in the European Union (EU) with two-way trade hitting 3 billion USD last year.

Chairperson of the Austrian National Council’s Foreign Affairs Committee Josef Cap said on December 1, 1972, Austria was the third Western country to establish diplomatic ties with Vietnam.

The bilateral relations have been developing positively in recent years across politics, economy and culture.

An exhibition titled “Vietnam – Global Destination 2017” was opened at the event, showcasing nearly 300 photos that feature world heritage sites, traditional craft villages, festivals, and cuisine in Vietnam as well as the beauty of Vietnamese seas and islands.

Documents on Vietnam’s Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos drew great attention from visitors.

Vietnamese artists also attracted participants with special music and dance performances.
