Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung met Ambassador John Nielsen of Denmark in Ha Noi yesterday, Feb 16.
In a meeting with Danish Ambassador John Nielsen, who recently took office in Vietnam, Dung said that 2011 marked 40 years since the establishment of Viet
Nam-Denmark diplomatic ties. He said he hoped the Danish Government would continue to provide Official Development Assistance (ODA) to Viet Nam,
especially capital to help the nation respond to climate change. He welcomed the plan to visit Viet Nam by the Danish Crown Prince on the occasion of the 40th
anniversary, and asked the two sides to join hands to achieve practical results from future high-level visits.
This would be an important year in the two countries’ diplomatic history, Ambassador Nielsen said, adding that the Crown Prince would lead a delegation of leading
Danish companies to seek opportunities for co-operation, especially in clean technology, energy and seafood, in Viet Nam this year.
