NDO/VNA - Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Le Cong Thanh was elected as President of the Vietnam-Denmark Friendship Association (VDFA) for the 2021-26 tenure during its third Congress held on October 15.
The event was organised in both in-person and virtual forms.
Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga, President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO), voiced her belief that under the leadership of Thanh and the executive committee for the 2021-26 term, the VDFA will obtain new achievements and further contribute to promoting the Vietnam-Denmark friendship and comprehensive partnership.
The association needs to foster cooperation with non-governmental organisations, educational establishments and firms of the countries so as to step up the bilateral relations as well as the Vietnam-EU ties, she added.
The VDFA has rolled out numerous activities to promote the images of Vietnam and its people and culture to Danish friends and vice versa, notably a drawing contest for children which helps deepen mutual understanding and friendship between people of the countries.
Such activities serve as a foundation for the Governments and people of Vietnam and Denmark to continue to expand and carry out cooperation programmes in a more comprehensive and effective manner in the coming time, heard the event.
The Vietnam-Denmark relations have been strengthened over the years. The countries elevated their relationship to comprehensive partnership level in 2013.
