President Vo commended contributions by the ambassador to the bilateral friendship and cooperation during her six-year tenure in Viet Nam. He expressed his belief that Naz, in any position, would contribute more to the bilateral ties. 

Through Ambassador Samina Naz, the Vietnamese leader respectfully sent greetings to His Excellency the President of Bangladesh, Mohammed Shahabuddin.

He highlighted the traditional relationship between the two countries, saying Bangladesh was among the very few South Asian nations that established diplomatic ties with Viet Nam 50 years ago.

As Viet Nam and Bangladesh share many similarities in economic development as both have paid attention to foreign investment attraction based on their abundant workforce, they should cooperate and exchange experience in this field.

For her part, Ambassador Samina Naz conveyed greetings and regards from President Shahabuddin to his Vietnamese counterpart. 

The diplomat congratulated Viet Nam on its achievements across spheres, and its advanced position in the international arena, stressing Bangladesh always hopes to learn from Viet Nam's experience.

She expressed her belief that under the leadership of the Communist Party of Viet Nam (CPV) headed by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, Viet Nam would reap more achievements in the future.

In response, President Vo shared Naz's view that the Viet Nam-Bangladesh relationship is developing fruitfully, with two-way trade jumping four-fold over the past decade and the two countries striving to raise the value to US$2 billion in the coming years.

Besides, the two countries also need to continue to support each other in multilateral forums in the region and the world.
