African countries are looking to cooperate with Vietnamese enterprises, H.E. João Manuel Bernado, Ambassador of The Republic of Angola in Vietnam, told a press conference on May 19 to promote Africa Day on May 25.

The Ambassadors of eight other African countries belonging the African Ambassadors Group in Vietnam also believe relations between enterprises from the continent and Vietnam should bolster their cooperation in the future.

H.E. Gamilied Munguambe, Ambassador of Mozambique in Vietnam, said there were major Vietnamese groups already investing in African countries, such as Viettel Group’s activities in Nigeria. H.E. Mohamed Berrah, Ambassador of Algeria in Vietnam, mentioned the investment by the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam) in his country.

Ambassador Bernado also spoke of the exchange activities planned to celebrate Africa Day on May 25, including a seminar on “Harnessing the Demographic Dividend Through Investment in Youth in Africa” to be held on May 22 and a celebratory party on May 25 in Hanoi.

The seminar will be attended by all African Ambassadors in Vietnam and leaders from the Vietnamese Government and local enterprises, with a discussion entitled “Promoting Startups Among Youth in the Globalization Era: Shared Experiences from Vietnam”.

Algeria and Vietnam will also celebrate 55 years of diplomatic relations in October. “Therefore, the Embassy of Algeria in Hanoi will organize a photo exhibition, a film week, and a party to promote our history and culture among Vietnamese,” Ambassador Berrah said.

“Although Vietnam and Africa have a long geographical distance between them, we want to advertise Africa’s history and culture and identify investment cooperation with Vietnamese enterprises through these activities,” said Ambassador Bernado.
