By capitalizing on each other's strengths, both nations can bolster agricultural productivity, ensure food security, and cater to the escalating demand for high-quality food products both domestically and internationally.

For the energy sphere, Viet Nam has implemented a range of measures and made remarkable strides in promoting sustainable energy initiatives, including supportive policies, capacity building efforts, and infrastructure development.

Also, the country actively seeks international collaboration, and India stands as a promising partner in this endeavor. India's expertise in renewable energy technologies presents valuable opportunities for collaboration.

India can support Viet Nam in harnessing the potential of solar, wind, and hydroelectric power generation through technology transfer, knowledge sharing, and joint research and development initiatives.

Regarding tourism, Viet Nam and India boast their own strengths and have organised many important promotion events in each other's localities, reflecting their efforts and determination to promote bilateral cooperation between management agencies and tourism businesses.
