Greetings from Ambassador Kim Højlund Christensen 

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

Ambassador Charlotte Laursen
Kim Højlund Christensen - Ambassador to Vietnam and Laos

Vietnam is a fascinating country with a tumultuous past that over the last decades has experienced rapid and impressive socio-economic development. I am proud that Denmark has been a part of that development, which goes very well in hand with the dynamics of the bilateral relationship between our two countries.

Since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1971, Vietnam and Denmark have enjoyed strong cooperation. In particular, we have had strong and successful development cooperation for over 20 years. Today, Vietnam remains an important partner-country for the Danish government, and the main task for the Embassy in the years to come is to further strengthen our relations, not least when it comes to our cooperation on the green agenda as a Climate Frontline Mission, and strengthen our commercial ties.

The Comprehensive Partnership Agreement between Vietnam and Denmark sets the platform for the shift from a partnership based on traditional development cooperation, to one embracing all aspects, including political dialogue, commerce, and culture. It is the Embassy’s finest task to work to utilize this potential to its full and to assist Danes and Vietnamese.   

At this home page, we aim to provide easy access to information about Denmark and the relationship between Vietnam and Denmark in areas such as politics, business cooperation, development cooperation, consular matters, and tourist information. The website is available in Danish, Vietnamese and English.

I hope the website meets your need of information. If not, my colleagues- both in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City- and I would be happy to provide you with further information whenever needed.

Best Regards,

Kim Højlund Christensen

Ambassador to Vietnam and Laos
