Vietnam holds farewell ceremony for Danish Ambassador John Nielsen


Danish Ambassador John Nielsen has met (end of June 2015) with Mr Lê Hoàng Quân, the Chairman of the People’s Committee in Ho Chi Minh City in connection with the Ambassador’s term coming to an end. The ceremony marked the last five years of fruitful political partnership between Denmark and Vietnam and the increased trade and investment between Danish and Vietnamese companies in the Ho Chi Minh City area.

At the meeting the Chairman expressed his appreciation of the close collaboration with Denmark. He thanked the Ambassador for his very active participation in increasing Danish business interests and raising awareness about climate change. He also recalled his fond memories of the many delegations that had visited Ho Chi Minh City over the years including successful visit from the Danish Royal Family.


“We have over these years seen a significant increase of Danish companies present in the HCMC, Binh Duong & Dong Nai areas. The Comprehensive Partnership Agreement signed in 2013 provides a good platform for further expanding this cooperation and I am very optimistic about the opportunities for increasing our business ties” concluded the Ambassador.
