Ambassador to Spain Hoang Xuan Hai said this  is the first visit by to Spain by a Vietnamese Government leader since 2017.

During the visit, both sides will review bilateral relationship over the past years and reach consensus on specific measures to tackle obstacles as well as discuss new cooperation mechanisms in priority areas such as basic infrastructure, green energy, climate change response and water resource management, toward carrying forward bilateral strategic partnership in the near future, he said.

The friendly cooperation between Viet Nam and Spain has kept improving over the past 46 years.

Spain was the first European Union country to establish strategic partnership with Viet  Nam in December 2009.

Viet Nam has become the biggest ASEAN trade partner of Spain with over US$ 3 billion on average each year.

In 2022, Viet Nam's export turnover to Spain surpassed US$4.2 billion while its import value stood at 525 million.

However, Spain's investment in Viet Nam remains modest, with 88 projects worth over US$ 143 million.

The two governments, ministries and agencies should consider amending or signing new agreements to create a legal framework for bilateral ties, particularly in the fields of their strength such as infrastructure, renewable energy, digital transformation, green technology, climate change response, hi-tech agriculture, health care, education-training, culture, sports and tourism.

In the immediate future, both sides should soon resume and launch several important cooperation mechanisms such as deputy ministerial-level political consultations and the first meeting of the Bilateral Cooperation Committee for Trade and Investment, thus reaching consensus on measures and roadmaps to lift bilateral ties, he said./.
