After several days of work, official delegations from the two States concluded on Monday the 41st Session of the Intergovernmental Commission for Economic and Scientific-Technical Collaboration, inking a Protocol containing various sectoral commitments including those closely related to trade, investment, agriculture, fisheries, biotechnology, health, construction, transportation, science, technology and environment, culture, tourism, sports, industry, energy and mines, finance and customs, higher education, labor and social security, information and communications, radio and television.

The closing ceremony was headed by the co-chairs of the Commission: Cuban Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment Ricardo Cabrisas, and Vietnamese Minister of Construction Nguyen Thanh Nghi.
