There are many signs that relations between Poland and Vietnam have a bright future, the Polish Embassy in Hanoi said in a press release announcing celebrations for the 225th anniversary of the first Polish Constitution, on May 3.

Poland, located at the very center of Europe, is Vietnam’s largest trade partner in the region, growing 17 per cent last year.

The country is famous for its successful economic transition from a centrally-planned to a market economy and is keen to share its experience with Vietnam.

“Vietnamese experts can use Polish experience to further develop the country’s economy,” the press released stated.

Poland will also share its experiences in education and development. In 2015 more than 35 students from Vietnam went to Poland on different Polish scholarships.

Poland has been working together with Vietnamese universities on exchange programs within the framework of the EU-financed Erasmus+ program.

Polish culture is also expanding in Vietnam, with the sharing of literature and music between the two nations providing a good environment for connectivity and people-to-people relations.

Proof of such relations is the large Vietnamese community in Poland, which stands at more than 40,000, who contribute to the development of the country.

2016 is also a historic year because Poland will celebrate 1,050 years since it became a state and the 66th anniversary of diplomatic relations with Vietnam.
