In reply, Sengupta said the bilateral cooperation is developing fruitfully in all spheres, ranging from economy, trade and investment to national defence and security, science, education, culture, tourism and agriculture.

India always attaches importance to relations with Vietnam, the guest said, expressing his hope that the two countries will step up people-to-people exchange in the time ahead in order to enhance solidarity and equality, and create favourable conditions for cultural and social development.
