Poland and Vietnam today celebrates the 65th anniversary of the two countries’ diplomatic relations since the establishment in 1950.

Throughout this year Polish Embassy together with Vietnamese partners would celebrate this remarkable anniversary, the embassy announced on February 3.

“One of the goals I set for myself when starting my diplomatic mission was to reduce the gap between our two countries. We cannot to narrow the geographical distance between Poland and Vietnam, but we could work to keep our countries closer in terms of culture, economics and science,” said Ambassador of Poland to Vietnam Barbara Szymanowska.

Perfect political relations between Poland and Vietnam are developed by high-level visits. In 2014 Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam Pham Binh Minh, visited Poland. In the same year Minister of Defence of the Republic of Poland Tomasz Siemoniak visited Vietnam.

However in economic relations there is still a lot to be done. There is huge potential diverted from political relations as well as friendly attitude of Vietnamese nation towards Poland can boost economic ties between Poland and Vietnam.   

Poland is also working on increasing cultural, scientific and educational cooperation. Such cooperation creates connectivity between people. People to people relations are very important for Polish-Vietnamese relations.

Poland is also offering for Vietnam official development assistance (ODA) credit for 250 million euros. The framework agreement on that is currently under the negotiations. The importance is that this credit will have direct influence on people’s life because projects have to comply to ODA regulations.
