On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of Viet Nam-Croatia relations (July 1, 1994-2024), Croatian Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Gordan Grlić Radman said that over the past 30 years, bilateral cooperation has been enhanced remarkably, reflected through high-level contacts and commitments on economic, cultural and diplomatic affairs.

Croatia wishes to expand cultural, scientific and educational exchanges to promote mutual understanding and friendship between the two countries' people, he said.

The minister went on to say that cultural diplomacy plays an important role in promoting the rich history and traditions of the two countries, while tourism cooperation remains a top priority, with efforts aiming to promote tourism and highlight their natural beauty and cultural attractions.

Besides, Croatia appreciates collaboration with Viet Nam at multilateral forums and is committed to working together to address global challenges such as climate change, sustainable development, and regional security.

About potential areas for future cooperation at both bilateral and multilateral levels, Minister Gordan Grlić Radman emphasized that there remains an ample room.

By leveraging their strengths and common values, the two countries can build a strong partnership that benefits both countries and positively contributes to regional and global issues.

Within the framework of the EU-ASEAN relations, strengthening cooperation on political, economic and security issues is still important. Croatia is willing to support initiatives to promote dialogue and collaboration between the two regions.

Croatia also hopes to further intensify coordination with Viet Nam within the framework of the United Nations (UN), and is ready to collaborate with the Viet Nam in global affairs, wherever the two countries have common interests.

Other possible areas of cooperation could include reducing vulnerability to climate change which affects human rights of local communities, and improving their resilience and adaptation.

Notably, the two countries' equal national-level commitments in implementing the 2030 Agenda and its sustainable development goals are a good basis for the cooperation and support of Viet Nam and Croatia at international forums at the global level.

To further promote bilateral relations, Viet Nam and Croatia need to focus on a number of important initiatives and actions such as to prioritize strengthening economic and trade cooperation and intensify diplomatic dialogue and high-level visits, Croatian Foreign Minister said./.
