Meeting representatives of the Vietnamese community in Bern, Switzerland, on Saturday, President Phuc said that the Vietnamese Party and State plan to issue a mechanism to collect and capitalise on feedback and initiatives of OV experts, intellectuals, and businesspeople.

He noted that Vietnam’s business environment has improved, attracting a large number of top investors to the country. Vietnam has also signed and enforced many new-generation free trade agreements.

Mr. Phuc called on OVs to raise the awareness of national traditions and culture among young generations, especially the Vietnamese language.

On the occasion, the President presented the Friendship Order to the Switzerland-Vietnam Friendship Association (SVFA) in honour of its contributions to friendship between the two countries.
