Vietnam, UK celebrate 45 years of diplomatic ties

More high-ranking British officials will visit Vietnam in the coming time to tighten relations between the two countries, according to UK Consul General to Ho Chi Minh City Ian Gibbons.

Mr. Gibbons made the remark at a ceremony in HCM city on Monday to mark the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-UK diplomatic relations and the 92nd birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. He said people-to-people exchange through education is one of the most significant aspects in bilateral ties.

Vietnam and the UK have enjoyed a fruitful relationship which has been reflected through regular exchange of high-ranking delegations, sound bilateral trade, and robust cooperation between enterprises from both sides. In the first 4 months of the year, two-way trade hit more than 2 billion USD. More than 10,000 Vietnamese students are currently studying in the UK.
