Delivering a speech, Ambassador Ngo Duc Manh said Vietnam – Russia comprehensive strategic partnership made significant progress last year, with political trust enhanced via high-level delegation exchanges, citing as examples the official visit by Vietnam’s Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, and trips to Vietnam by Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Viktorovich Volodin.

Bilateral ties thrived in all fields from economy and defense-security to education and humanities cooperation, he said, adding that two-way trade exceeded 5.5 billion USD, an annual increase of 30 percent.

The diplomat expressed his belief that the partnership will further grow and deepen with efforts made by both countries, highlighting that hundreds of activities have been planned to celebrate the 69th anniversary of their diplomatic relations as well as the Vietnam Year in Russia and Russia Year in Vietnam this year.
