Speaking after receiving the Medal, the Ambassador, Mr Rolf Bergman expressed his great honour to receive the Medal also on behalf of all his colleagues at the Swedish Embassy. Mr Bergman said:
“Our two Governments stand united when it comes to put the fight against corruption very high on the agenda. Anti-corruption is a long and hard-working endeavour but I’m confident that Vietnam and its people will succeed in this combat against the evil of corruption, which deprives the people of its wealth and well-being.”
