VGP - The Viet Nam-Cuba Friendship Association of Ho Chi Minh City and the Union of Friendship Organisations co-hosted a get-together in Ho Chi Minh City on January 9 to mark the 59th anniversary of Cuba's Revolution Day  (January 1, 1959- 2018).

Speaking at the event, Chairwoman of the Ho Chi Minh City Viet Nam- Cuba Friendship Association Truong Thi Hien said that cooperation relations between Viet Nam and Cuba have blossomed in the multifaceted fields in the previous years. 

She praised the special relations between the two nations and growing cooperation across sectors such as agriculture, industry, oil and gas, construction, culture, education, and science-technology. 

Cuban Consul General Indira Lopez Arguelles stressed the importance of Cuba’s Revolution Day, which marked the country’s revolutionary victory under the leadership of Fidel Castro. 

She said right after the success of the revolution, Cuba and Viet Nam established close-knit relations, which have been strengthened thanks to joint projects in education and health.

She pledged to continue strengthening further economy, investment and trade cooperation ties between the two nations in the coming time. 

In recent years, Cuba has learned from Viet Nam’s experience and knowledge while updating its economic model for growth, the official noted.  

On the occasion, the Viet Nam-Cuba Friendship Association reviewed the outcomes of its poster contest to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Che Guevara's death.
