Speaking at the event, Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga said that this award recognized the active and tireless efforts of Ambassador Ibnu Hadi to promote cordial cooperation between Vietnam and Indonesia, including in building and fostering friendly relations between the people of the two countries.

In his remarks, Ambassador Ibnu Hadi expressed his gratitude for the noble award. The last year of his assignment in Vietnam was even more special because it coincided with Vietnam's Chairmanship in ASEAN 2020 and the 65th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Indonesia and Vietnam (30/12/1955 - 30/12/2020).

Over the past 5 years, bilateral cooperation between Indonesia and Vietnam in the fields of politics, trade, investment, socio-culture, and people-to-people relations have seen remarkable developments.

He said that although this year we could not reach the total trade target of 10 billion dollars due to the impact of the pandemic, in the first nine months of 2020, bilateral trade between Indonesia and Vietnam had reached 5.73 billion dollars. He believed that during the economic recovery, the two countries will be able to achieve this target, he emphasized./.
