Dear compatriots and Vietnamese friends,

I am glad to introduce you to the website of the Embassy of Italy in Hanoi and the social media related to it.

Vietnam is a very welcoming country, the Vietnamese have true respect and sympathy for the Italians and they admire what Italy represents from a qualitative point of view regarding economic-commercial and cultural perspectives.

Nevertheless, there are many cultural differences, together with the geographical distance and the use of quite a difficult language for the Westerners, which make the institutional network (Embassy, Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City, ICE Agency, Chamber of Commerce) an irreplaceable reference point for all the Italians who are interested in getting in touch with this wonderful country, so full of opportunities.

The Embassy is conscious of its role as a “bridge” and works at 360° for the widening of the bilateral relationships in all sectors, within the strategic partnership signed in 2013 during the State visit to Italy by General Secretary of the Communist Party Nguyen Phu Trong, enhanced in 2015 by the historic visit to Vietnam of the President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella. On our website and social media, which I suggest you to follow, you will find news and updates about our activity and various aspects regarding the Italian presence in Vietnam.

As I am speaking also to the Vietnamese public, I want to assure my best efforts, as well as of the whole staff, to provide quick and efficient services and to support in the best possible way the continued growth of the relations between our two countries, so that they will always be more intense, fruitful and meaningful.

Best wishes to all of you and your work.


Antonio Alessandro

Ambassador of Italy to Vietnam
