It is my pleasure and honor to acknowledge the first ever voluntary financial contribution to the CICA Secretariat’s budget by the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to H.E. Ambassador Mrs. Pham Thai Nhu Mai for paying a visit to CICA Secretariat Headquarters today, for her constant support of our work and convey my gratitude to the Government of Viet Nam for this significant gesture.
Since joining CICA in 2010 Viet Nam has been a continuous proponent of the CICA process, sharing its experience and wisdom with other Member States.
I am also grateful for the participation of H.E. Mrs. Vo Thi Anh Xuan, Acting President of Viet Nam, in the 6th CICA Summit in October 2022 where I had the pleasure of holding a meeting with Her Excellency.
I am confident that Viet Nam will further contribute to the development of CICA and its gradual transformation into a full-fledged international organization.
I wish us further fruitful cooperation in the interest of continuous CICA process for the benefit, peace and prosperity of Asia.
