"I am very impressed with the various activities carried out by Ambassador Ibnu Hadi and the Indonesian Embassy in Hanoi in various fields to promote friendship between the two nations," said Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga in her remarks.
In his remarks, Ambassador Ibnu Hadi expressed his gratitude for the noble award given to him. The last year of his assignment in Vietnam was even more special because it coincided with Vietnam's Chairmanship in ASEAN 2020 and the 65th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Indonesia and Vietnam (30/12/1955 - 30/12/2020).
In the last 4.5 years, bilateral cooperation between Indonesia and Vietnam in the fields of politics, trade, investment, socio-culture, and people-to-people relations have seen remarkable developments.
"Although this year we could not reach the total trade target of 10 billion dollars due to the impact of the pandemic, in the first nine months of 2020, bilateral trade between Indonesia and Vietnam had reached 5.73 billion dollars. I am sure that during the economic recovery, the two countries will be able to achieve this target," he said.PSNews
