Cuban President Meets Vietnamese Counterpart, Seeks to Boost Ties

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam – Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel met with his Vietnamese counterpart, Nguyen Phu Trong, on Friday during his three-day official visit to the South-East Asian country.

Diaz-Canel was received on Thursday night by Vietnam Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh at Hanoi airport along with Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla and the vice president of the Council of Ministers, Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz.

In his first visit to Vietnam, Diaz-Canel visited the monument to the martyrs and mausoleum dedicated to Ho Chi Minh before meeting with President Nguyen Phu Trong and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc at the presidential palace.

One of the most important items on the agenda of the visit is the bilateral trade agreement to strengthen economic ties between both countries, according to local media, Vietnam News.

During a recent Cuba Investment Forum the deputy director general of Vietnam’s Ministry of Planning and Investment, Vo Van Chung said that both countries are discussing the approval of an agreement that seeks to increase trade from 2017’s $224.3 million to $500 million in 2022.

Diaz-Canel’s visit comes after Trong’s March meeting with Raul Castro in Havana, a month before he handed over the presidency to Diaz-Canel.

The Cuban president will conclude his visit in Ho Chi Minh City, the country’s biggest city, where he is set to visit tunnels dug by communist guerrillas during the war with the United States and attend a gala dinner.
