“In the Asian region Vietnam represents a significant economic partner for Slovakia. Among the positives from the former period are the many Vietnamese citizens who in the era of Czechoslovakia acquired education or qualifications and who now hold senior posts in the government and business sector (in Vietnam),” reads a press release by Gašparovič’s office.

The documents to be signed include an agreement on support and mutual protection of investments, a memorandum of understanding between the foreign affairs ministries, an agreement on co-operation between Vietnam’s state audit office and the Supreme Audit Office of Slovakia. TASR
