Jerusalem (VNA)Deputy Minister in the Cabinet of Israeli Prime Minister Abir Kara hailed Vietnam’s development achievements at a ceremony hosted by the Vietnamese Embassy in Israel on September 11 to mark the 77th anniversary of Vietnam’s National Day (September 2).

Speaking at the event, Vietnam’s Ambassador to Israel Ly Duc Trung briefed attendees on Vietnam’s socio-economic performance, saying GDP in the first half grew by 6.42 percent while the inflation was under control. Ties between Vietnam and Israel have grown in various fields, especially in trade, high technology, agriculture and healthcare.

Abir Kara, who is also a member of the Israeli parliament, said bilateral ties have become increasingly close, especially in agriculture, health, education, innovation and start-ups.

More and more Vietnamese students are studying in Israel and we hope that there will be even more in the future. Israeli tourist arrivals to Vietnam are also on the rise to learn more about the country and its people, he said.

Attendees of the event watched a short film introducing Vietnam, its culture and people as well as a documentary about President Ho Chi Minh, watched a fashion show and tasted traditional Vietnamese cuisine./.
