Vietnam – important trading partner of France

In 2023, France and Vietnam celebrate two anniversaries including the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between France and Vietnam (1973-2023) and the tenth anniversary of the strategic partnership between the two countries. French Consul General in HCMC Emmanuelle Pavillon-Grosser had a talk with Saigon Giai Phong Newspaper about this event.

Vietnam is an important trading partner of France, said French Consul General in HCMC Emmanuelle Pavillon-Grosser as France and Vietnam have built a sustainable partnership in the economic field, especially in infrastructure, transportation, energy, and space technology for a long time.

To mark this half-century of diplomatic relations, the French and Vietnamese authorities held a nationwide contest and jointly selected a logo that combines the number 50 with the symbols of each country such as the Eiffel Tower of France and the Vietnamese Ao Dai on the flags of each country, said the female consular.

She disclosed that this celebration carries the slogan ‘Sharing Culture’, which will be displayed throughout the year. This logo and slogan were officially announced by Mr. Gérard Larcher, President of the French Senate and Mr. Vuong Dinh Hue, President of the National Assembly of Vietnam.

In November 2021, Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh paid an official visit to France. At the time the Covid-19 pandemic ended in the Southeast Asian country, exchanges between the two sides were quickly restored along with many high-level discussions, especially the official visit to Vietnam in December 2022 by the President of French Senate Gérard Larcher, said French Consul Emmanuelle Pavillon-Grosser.
