NDO/VNA - Vietnam considers Mozambique a loyal friend and priority partner in Africa, President Tran Dai Quang told outgoing Mozambican Ambassador to Vietnam Gamiliel Sepul Veda Joao Munguambe on February 23.

President Quang lauded the ambassador’s contributions to bilateral ties during his tenure, hoping that the two countries would build on the past achievements to expand cooperation to farm produce processing, transport, mining and education.

The Vietnamese leader also expected the outgoing ambassador to continue working to boost ties between Vietnam and African countries in general and with Mozambique in particular.

Munguambe, for his part, expressed his honour to be the first Mozambican ambassador when the African country opened the embassy in Vietnam in 2012.

He noted that potential for further cooperation between the two countries remains huge and there are many opportunities to further raise two-way trade.
