Vietnam promotes cooperation with Paraguay

Vietnamese Ambassador to Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay Dang Xuan Dung had a working visit to Asuncion, capital of Paraguay, to promote cooperation between Vietnam and Paraguay.

Ambassador Dung met with Deputy Foreign Minister of Paraguay Federico Gonzalez, during which the two sides discussed the potential for expanding cooperation in economy and trade and the possibility to hold the next political consultation meeting in early 2019. During a meeting with representatives from the Paraguayan Ministry of Industry and Trade, both sides evaluated cooperation outcomes over the past three years. In the coming time, the Paraguayan ministry hopes to set up partnership with Vietnam's Trade Promotion Agency and work with the Vietnamese Embassy in Argentina to organise some activities to introduce products of each country and visits of businesses to each other's market. Both sides held that the strengthening of bilateral trade ties will help promote Vietnam's penetration to markets of the South American trade bloc (Mercosur) as well as offer a chance for Paraguayan goods to penetrate ASEAN markets.

In a working session with Governor of Asuncion Mario Ferreiro, Ambassador Dung stressed the importance of affiliation between the two countries' localities in the overall ties between Vietnam and Paraguay.
