The year 2015 has, for Indonesia and Vietnam, represented a significant milestone in our relationship. Our two countries have celebrated a series of historical events such as the 70th anniversary of Viet Nam’s and Indonesia’s National Day, the 60th anniversary of the diplomatic relations (30/12/1955 – 30/12/2015) and the establishment of ASEAN Economic Community. Since the establishment of our strategic partnership in June 2013, both Vietnam and Indonesia have implemented an Action Plan for the years 2014 to 2018 aimed at promoting bilateral diplomacy, political dialogue, economic cooperation, security and defense cooperation, and actions in areas including culture exchanges and the promotion of tourism.
This Action Plan is the driving force that will deepen the ties between Viet Nam and Indonesia and add strength and depth to our bilateral cooperation that we hope will yield important dividends for both of our countries in the near future.
I’m honoured to have a chance to contribute to the traditional relationship established by President Ho Chi Minh and President Soekarno and constantly consolidated by the hard work of generations of leaders and fostered by the sustained commitment to friendship between the people of Vietnam and the people of Indonesia.
I believe that Viet Nam Embassy in Indonesia will work long and hard to serve as the bridge between our two countries, and our two people, and I will devote myself to promoting our strategic relationship and deepening our historic friendship.
Warm regards to all of you!
