The Prime Minister took the occasion to recall the Viet Nam-Romania relations over the past nearly 75 years, highlighting the help that Romania gave Viet Nam during the time of national liberation in the past and national development later.

Romania actively worked to push the negotiations and signing of the EU-Viet Nam Free Trade Agreement and the EU-Viet Nam Investment Protection Agreement.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Romania provided Viet Nam with 300,000 doses of vaccines.

Viet Nam, said the Prime Minister, treasures the traditional friendship and good cooperation with Romania and wants to enhance the bilateral cooperative ties, particularly in education-training.

He noted that Romania has so far trained about 4,000 Vietnamese students, with many of them later becoming leading scientists or holding high positions in the Vietnamese Party and State. The Prime Minister expressed his hope that Romania will grant more scholarships for Viet Nam.

The UTCB trained around 1,000 Vietnamese students from 1970-1980.

Since 2008 to now, five Vietnamese students have received scholarships under the two Governments’ agreement to study at the university. The university has signed with the University of Liège of Belgium and Thuy Loi University of Viet Nam a tripartite agreement on cooperation in research and training in civil engineering.

Prime Minister Pham said he hoped the UTCB will further promote cooperation in training and research with Vietnamese partners, contributing to the relations between Viet Nam and Romania.

The Vietnamese Government chief thanked generations of teachers and friends who had accompanied and helped him a lot at the university.

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh is on an official visit to Romania from January 20-22 at an invitation of Prime Minister Ion-Marcel Ciolacu.

The visit is expected to create a new driving force to promote cooperation between the two countries in many fields, affirming Viet Nam’s wish to continue promoting and deepening its traditional friendship and multifaceted cooperation with the European country./.
