Bui Khac Son, VUFO Vice President, gave the honour to Ambassador Stoytchev at a ceremony held in Hanoi on October 5.

Son said during his working term in Vietnam, Ambassador Stoytchev coordinated closely with Vietnamese agencies as well as the VUFO and the Vietnam-Bulgaria Friendship Association in organising joint activities on major events of both countries.

He actively worked for the promotion of friendship and cooperation of the two countries in various fields, including the economy, culture and education.

Particularly, the diplomat and his spouse helped organise a dancing class at the Vietnam-Bulgaria pre-school to introduce folk dances of Bulgaria, said Son.

Son expressed his hope that in the future, in any position, Stoytchev will continue his efforts to boost the friendship and partnership between Vietnam and Bulgaria.

For his part, Ambassador Stoytchev said that he is delighted and proud of receiving the insignia.

Bulgaria is always here whenever Vietnam needs, he stressed, adding that both sides should exert every effort to further bilateral economic and trade collaboration to match their potential.

The diplomat also pledged that in any position, he always works hard for the development of friendship and solidarity between the two peoples.
