24/06/2017

On June 21st, Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung received Israeli Ambassador to Vietnam Meirav Eilon Shahar to take leave on the occasion of completing her tenure.

Chairman Chung congratulated Ambassador Shahar on excellently accomplishing her mission in Vietnam and appreciated her great effort and contribution to progress of the multifaceted cooperation between Vietnam and Israel. She helped Hanoi to enjoy opportunities to work with many Israeli enterprises, especially through the recent State visit by Israeli President Reuven Ruvi Rivlin to Vietnam, stressed he.

Israel recognised the full market economy of Vietnam, received more agricultural apprentices and increased scholarships for Vietnamese students. Both sides negotiated a free trade agreement, signed a memorandum of understanding on setting up a joint research fund and boosted the cooperation in hi-tech agriculture and security-defence industry, etc. The achievements have turned Israel into one of the leading partners of Vietnam in the Middle East.

Thanking Chairman of Hanoi for the meeting, the Israeli diplomat stated that for 5 years working in Vietnam, she had constantly strived for the bilateral cooperation in economics – trade, culture, science – technology, education and security – defence. Back to her country, she will continue dedicating herself to strengthening and promoting the Israel – Vietnam relations, said she.

In addition, Ambassador Shahar suggested fields the two countries could collaborate in future, including water management and human resources improvement.

Agreeing on the proposal by the Israeli ambassador, the leader of Hanoi considered the potential of bilateral cooperation remarkably high, particularly in IT, education and agriculture. Thus he hoped the diplomat would keep acting as the bridge to help implement cooperative projects in an efficient way to make the Vietnam – Israeli relations more substantive and practical.
