Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam and Cuba reviewed
cooperation outcomes this year and agreed on cooperation contents for 2022
during the 39th meeting of their Inter-Governmental Committee, held
virtually in Hanoi on December 28.

Minister of Construction Nguyen Thanh Nghi, co-chair
of the committee, said cooperation between Vietnam and Cuba has been maintained
in 2021 despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two-way trade in the January-November period reached
105 million USD, up 2 percent year-on-year, he said, adding that Vietnam has
strived to maintain its rice exports to Cuba, helping the Caribbean nation ensure
food security and social stability.

Through conferences and workshops, both online and in-person,
the two sides have popularised the Vietnam-Cuba trade agreement among their
businesses and relevant associations.

Notably, the joint investment working group has
introduced Cuba’s new policies, priority areas and projects calling for foreign
investments, and proposed solutions to remove difficulties facing Vietnamese
investors in Cuba.

The cooperation project on rice production in Cuba for
the 2019-2023 period has been carried out as scheduled. Meanwhile, the two
sides have coordinated to raise proposals regarding the project helping Cuba
with aquatic farming, third phase, and another on corn cultivation in the
country.

Remarkable progress has also been made in
collaboration in health care and bio-technology. Cuba has provided Vietnam with
5 million doses of Abdala COVID-19 vaccine.

Within the official visit to Cuba by President Nguyen
Xuan Phuc last September, ministries, agencies and businesses of the two countries
signed many important cooperation agreements, covering economy, fisheries,
health care, cyber security, justice, hotels and clean energy.

The signing has created a crucial foundation for the
two countries to concretise activities and expand cooperation opportunities in
the areas in which both are interested in.

Given difficulties and shortcomings to the bilateral
cooperation, Vietnam suggested the Cuban government soon take solutions to ensure
the effective operation of Vietnamese projects.

The two sides consented to step up collaboration in priority
fields as well as the spheres in which both are interested.

They will work to effectively implement reached
agreements and create conditions for businesses to utilise tax incentives of
the Vietnam-Cuba trade agreement to raise the bilateral trade.

More efforts will be made to roll out the cooperation
project on rice production in Cuba, and sketch out the corn and aquaculture
projects that are expected to be submitted to competent agencies for approval,
heard the meeting.

The two health ministries will enhance cooperation in
the supply and transfer of COVID-19 vaccine production technology in Vietnam.

Vietnam and Cuba will also continue with partnerships
in other fields like construction, information-communications, finance,
customs, banking, education-training, culture-sports-tourism,
labour-invalids-social affairs, radio, television, science-technology and
justice, among others.

On this occasion, the Vietnamese Ministry of Culture,
Sports and Tourism and the Cuban Ministry of Culture signed a memorandum of
understanding on cooperation in culture./.
