Greetings from Ambassador
Warmest welcome to the Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in the Kingdom of Norway and the Embassy's official website.
Just a decade has passed since the Embassy of Vietnam in Norway was reestablished in the beautiful and hospitable city of Oslo, the Vietnam - Norway bilateral relationship has recorded significant developments. Exchanges of visits between Heads of State and Governments of the two countries have taken place regularly, most notably the official visit to Norway last May by H.E. Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Prime Minister of Vietnam, demonstrating both sides' aspiration of further strengthening the relation. In the context the world economy is facing many challenges and develops with slow growth rate, bilateral economic and commercial relations have continued to thrive. Vietnam is still an attractive destination of the Norwegian tourists, and more and more Vietnamese choose Norway as the place to visit. On that foundation, with our comparative and supplementary advantages and mutual determination, there is much room for our bilateral relationship to develop, especially when Vietnam assumes the role of non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council from 2020 to 2021 and the 2020 Chairman of the Association of the Southest Asian Nations (ASEAN).
The staff at the Embassy, though small in number, has been contributing our very best to the strengthening of the traditional friendly relationship and multifaceted cooperation between the two countries, to the support and protection of the Vietnamese community in the country. We highly appreciate the attention, assistance, support by Norwegian friends as well as the Vietnamese community in upgrading our bilateral relationship.
The Embassy's website provides official and updated information about Vietnam, a beautiful and fast growing Asian country with a long history, typical national and cultural tradition, about the peaceful, hard-working and hospitable Vietnamese. Full and updated information on Vietnam - Norway relations and Embassy's activities are also available in the website.
The Embassy spares no efforts in fulfilling our responsibilites as a effective bridge of bilateral relation, in turning the Embassy's website into a reliable source of interesting and useful information for all visitors. We expect to see you regularly at the Embassy premises as well as at the website.
Oslo, February 2020.
