Thursday، 07 September 2017 - 02:13 PM

Your Excellency, President of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam Tran Dai Quang,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Let me first express my pleasure for being here in the friendly state of Vietnam and extend my thanks and appreciation for His Excellency President Tran Dai Quang for the warm reception and good hospitality, which is not strange to Vietnam, with whom, Egypt keeps historical relations of friendship and cooperation.

Throughout decades, Egypt and Vietnam have been holding distinguished relations that are featured with reciprocal respect, coordination and cooperation in all political, economic and cultural fields.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I tackled today with His Excellency the President, means of boosting bilateral relations in all fields, especially the economic one in the light of Vietnam’s success in the industrial and commercial domains that is worthy of consideration to achieve the economic progress for the peoples, taking into mind the social aspects and cultural identity.

In this regard, I expressed to His Excellency the President, the importance Egypt attaches on enhancing the trade exchange and addressing the deficit of the trade balance. Within this context, I briefed the President on the economic developments, Egypt is currently passing through, in terms of the mega national projects that target providing an investment attractive environment and domesticating of technology, especially in the Suez Canal Corridor, which is considered an important waterway for the world navigation and a main artery for the world trade movement.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I discussed also with the President means of boosting our cooperation to counter the growing terrorism phenomenon that has become posing common threat to the whole international community’s security and stability. We highlighted importance of the coherent international efforts to put an end to this phenomenon, which obstructs our endeavours to provide the most adequate climate to the economic growth and bring our peoples’ ambitions for a safe living to a reality.

In this regard, I explained the Egyptian vision on the strategy of counter terrorism. It (strategy) doesn’t include only the military and security tools, rather it covers culture and education, besides renewal of the religious discourse to keep pace with issues of the modern age and uproot the sectarian and doctrinal polarization, in a bid to achieve decisive result in this confrontation.

Your Excellency the President, I reiterate my big pleasure to meet you, my thanks for the warm reception, and I look forward that our bilateral relations will take off to a more vast horizon of cooperation that meets our friendly Egyptian and Vietnamese peoples. I am also pleased to extend you an invitation to visit Egypt in the near future to build on the outcome of this fruitful visit between our friend countries.

My Greetings and Appreciation Mr. President,

                                                          Thank You Very Much
