Speaking at the event, VUFO President, Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga stressed that this is an appropriate time to comprehensively evaluate the great results and significant contributions of the institute to nurturing the two countries’ relations for a quarter of a century, and to discuss measures to further promote the relationship in the coming time.
