Swedish Ambassador Camilla Mellander had an official meeting with Vietnam’s Minister of Justice Ha Hung Cuong on Jan 15 as her new post in the country has started.
The Swedish Ambassador expressed that Sweden highly appreciated the longstanding relationship with Vietnam and pointed out that the cooperation in the legal sector played an important part of the relationship.
Ambassador Mellander underlined that the relationship with Vietnam entered into a new phase and cooperation in the areas of green technologies, environmental management, media, culture and research will continue to grow also without the support of ODA-funding.
Minister Cuong welcomed Ambassador Mellander to Vietnam and thanked Sweden for the long-lasting relationship with Vietnam, particularly with the Ministry.
Minister Cuong also emphasized that with Swedish support over the last 20 years in the legal sector, many positive results have been seen in the legal education, legal aids and judicial reform. Both sides also shared views on law enforcement, judicial reform, legal perfection, Constitution amendment and child adoption.
Minister Cuong wished Ambassador Mellander to have a successful term in Vietnam and expected more partnerships in the legal sector between Sweden and Vietnam in coming years.
