Mexican President vows to tighten ties with Vietnam

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has committed to continue intensifying multi-faceted cooperation with Vietnam, especially after the two countries sign and ratify the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

The leader made the pledge when receiving a letter of credentials presented by Vietnamese Ambassador to Mexico Nguyen Hoai Duong in Mexico City on May 7.

He spoke highly of the achievements Vietnam has gained in more than 30 years of renewal, while stressing huge potential for bilateral cooperation.

The President also showed his belief that Ambassador Duong will have a successful working tenure in Mexico.

For his part, the Vietnamese Ambassador vowed to do his utmost to foster the friendship and multi-faceted collaboration between Vietnam and Mexico.

He said he believes that the multi-faceted cooperation will grow further, based on the existing good relations, particularly since the meeting between the Presidents of the two countries within the framework of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week in Vietnam’s Da Nang City in November 2017 and after the two countries sign and ratify the CPTPP.

Vietnam and Mexico set up diplomatic ties on May 19, 1975. Two-way trade has enjoyed an average annual growth of around 10 percent, standing at over 5 billion USD in 2017.
