According to Ambassador Park, even in the context of COVID-19, the two countries’ relations are still on a good track of development. After the pandemic is under control, Koreans are returning to Vietnam to travel, invest, and work. At the same time, the two countries are aiming to upgrade their relations to a comprehensive strategic partnership.

The Korean ambassador said that in 2022, the two countries will celebrate the 30th anniversary of establishing the bilateral diplomatic relations, an important milestone in the Vietnam-RoK cooperation and an opportunity for the two sides to further beef up their cooperation in all fields.
