Ambassador Portocarrero said that Vietnam-Peru relations have made remarkable progress in trade-investment cooperation, especially since the entry into force of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), of which both countries are members.

"That is why one of the goals of my term in Vietnam is to promote Peruvian culture and foster economic and commercial ties, as well as strengthen cooperation with the city of Hanoi in many ways," she said. 

Regarding the Embassy's series of cultural activities to celebrate the 30th anniversary of bilateral ties, Chairman Thanh pledged to support and create the best conditions for the embassy to organize events successfully. 

Briefing the guest on Hanoi's activities to celebrate the 70th anniversary of its liberation, which will culminate on October 6, the Chairman expressed his wish that the Embassy coincide some of its cultural activities this year with such celebrations. 

Chairman Thanh also wanted to promote trade and investment between Hanoi and Peruvian localities. At the same time, he hoped that the two countries would continue to promote cultural exchanges, tourism and people-to-people diplomacy.

He wished the Ambassador a successful term of work in Vietnam, contributing to the strengthening of relations between the two countries in all fields.
