Greeting from Ambassador

Welcome to the official website of the Embassy of Denmark in Vietnam.

Denmark and Vietnam has together built a long history of strong friendship and cooperation since 1971 when our two countries established official diplomatic relations. With the signing of the Comprehensive Partnership Agreement in 2013, Denmark and Vietnam moved from traditional development cooperation to a full-fledged and mutually beneficial partnership on trade and investment, green growth, political dialogue, energy, food safety, education, health and culture.

Vietnam is an important partner for Denmark when it comes to sustainable and responsible growth. For the past 15 years, Denmark has shared with Vietnamese partners substantial experience and well-proven solutions to combat climate change and support Vietnam’s green transition and development through various projects and commercial activities.

The economic and commercial relations between Denmark and Vietnam have also expanded substantially. The total value of bilateral trade in goods more than doubled during 2013-2017. The trend remains rising and today we have more than 135 Danish companies with a legal setup in Vietnam. Denmark is now also one of the biggest European investors in Vietnam.

Even though we have already accomplished a lot together, the potential for future cooperation is still huge. As the Danish ambassador to Vietnam, my main task is to further strengthen the already very strong and prosperous relationship with Vietnam in all areas, for the benefits of the two countries and people.

On our website, you will find information about Denmark and the relationship between Vietnam and Denmark in areas such as politics, business cooperation, climate & energy and green growth. You will also find information about the consular assistance that the embassy provides to Danish and Vietnamese citizens. The website is available in Danish, English and Vietnamese. Please also follow us on Facebook here and LinkedIn here.    

The embassy also handles the connections between Denmark and Laos.

You are welcome to contact us should you have further questions or need any additional information.

With warm regards,

Nicolai Prytz

Ambassador to Vietnam and Laos
