Chairwoman Ngan welcomed the visiting President. Despite geographical distance, Vietnamese and Argentinean people always support each other. Viet Nam, said the top legislator, always bears in mind the solidarity and support of Argentinean people for national liberation. 

The host leader expressed her delight at the positive development of the bilateral relations over the years. Political ties have been intensified through regular delegation exchanges and bilateral meetings on the sidelines of international events. The two-way trade has increased rapidly, doubling in value over five years to reach US$ 2.9 billion in 2018. 

In reply, President Macri confirmed that Argentina wants to strengthen its cooperation with Viet Nam, which is currently its fifth largest trade partner in the world and the second in Asia. 

The guest leader briefed the host of the positive outcomes of his talks with Vietnamese Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong, President Macri voiced his hope that with the backing of the Vietnamese legislature, both sides will be able to further exchange trade and investment ties, and the relationship between the two legislative bodies will be tightened so as to deepen Argentina-Viet Nam relations. 

He voiced his support for the stance of solving disputes related to sovereignty and territory through peaceful negotiations and in accordance with international law.

The Vietnamese top legislator suggested both sides step up the exchange of delegations at all levels, and maintain and increase the efficiency of such cooperation mechanisms as the Inter-Governmental Committee and political consultation at the deputy foreign ministerial level.

The political relationship will act as a foundation to develop economic, trade, and investment ties./.
