Highlighting the strong traditional friendship and multi-faceted cooperation between Vietnam and Bulgaria, he suggested the two sides maintain all-level delegation exchanges to discuss measures to intensify bilateral rapports. He urged the two countries to soon conduct the 24th meeting of the inter-governmental committee on economic, trade and scientific cooperation with the implementation of practical and specific projects with a view to increasing two-way trade.
