Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong will pay an official visit to France from March 25 to 27 and a state visit to Cuba from March 28 to 30, according to an announcement from the Commission for External Relations of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee.

The visits will be made at the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron and First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba’s Central Committee and President of the Councils of State and Ministers Raul Castro.

Vietnam established diplomatic relations with France in April 1973 and with Cuba much earlier, in December 1960.

France has been one of Vietnam’s most important partners in Europe, with the partnership resulting in a number of projects with promising results in the fields of urban management, environment, health, and education.

Bilateral cooperation between Vietnam and Cuba has been expanded in numerous fields, such as agriculture, industry, construction, trade, investment, culture, education, and science and technology.
