Ferriol Marchena and Thant Tung signed on Monday a letter of intention aimed at organizing activities on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of relations between Havana and Hanoi. 

According to the document, an exchange of experts is foreseen, joint exhibitions in addition to negotiations in storing information via email.
