Vietnam and Denmark celebrated 45 years of diplomatic ties on 25 November. This happened with a gathering in Ho Chi Minh City organised by The Royal Danish Embassy.
For more than four decades, Vietnam and Denmark have evolved a very strong partnership, said Danish ambassador to Vietnam, Charlotte Laursen.
Over the years, Denmark and Vietnam’s collaboration has expanded to things like economy and tourism, along with cross-cultural activities being held, like the Danish Film Festival in Hanoi.
Le Quang Long, Acting Director of HCM City’s Department for External Relations, said that the two countries relationship has flourished ever since Denmark became one of the first European countries to re-establish diplomatic ties after the Vietnam war. Especially their partnership in climate change and green growth has escalated since 2011.
