The Slovenian government highly values Vietnam’s advantages of robust market growth, human resources, and business and investment environment, Slovenian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Tanja Fajon told a meeting with Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on Tuesday.

Many leading Slovenian firms have shown interest in the Vietnamese market and have entered the country to sound out cooperation and investment opportunities, said the Slovenian foreign minister.

She affirmed that Slovenia always expects to deepen the traditional friendship and partnership with Vietnam, which is one of the former’s key trade partners.

At the reception for the top Slovenian official, Prime Minister Chinh underscored that Vietnam attaches much significance to the multifaceted cooperation with Slovenia.

The prime minister proposed Slovenia further smooth the path for Vietnamese products such as electronics, apparel, and farm produce to enter the Slovenian and European Union markets.

The Vietnamese cabinet leader also proposed the Southeast European nation speed up the ratification of the EU-Vietnam Investment Protection Agreement (EVIPA), and urge the European Commission to remove its ‘yellow card’ warning against Vietnamese seafood.

The ‘yellow card’ is a kind of warning issued by the European Commission to countries involved in illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing.

The two leaders reached a consensus on stronger collaboration at regional and international forums and in the fight against global challenges such as climate change, energy, and food.

Discussing some issues related to the East Vietnam Sea, the two top officials stressed the importance of maritime freedom, peace, security, and the settlement of disputes based on peaceful measures and international law.

The Vietnamese prime minister also called on Slovenia to continue creating favorable conditions for Vietnamese citizens to live and work in the country.

Speaking at a meeting with her Vietnamese counterpart Bui Thanh Son on the same day, Fajon said that the Slovenian government was in the process of ratifying EVIPA and threw its support behind the removal of the ‘yellow card’ warning against Vietnam’s seafood.

The two ministers pledged to join hands to organize cultural and exchange programs to mark the 30th anniversary of their diplomatic ties in 2024.

After their talks, the two ministers signed an agreement for cooperation between the two ministries of foreign affairs.
