Ambassador’s message

Welcome to the official website of the Embassy of Viet Nam in Sri Lanka. Vietnam’s ancient culture and history is over 4 thousand years old, and the country is adorned with many exceptionally beautiful places recognized as natural world heritage sites. With a population of approximately 90 mil, Vietnam is growing with a young, hardworking and talented labour force. Besides this, Viet Nam is located in the center of an economically growing region. Therefore, Viet Nam is an ideal destination for tourism and business. Our website introduces you to a new renovated and integrated Viet Nam.

After 20 years on the road of renovation and growth, Viet Nam has been recording important achievements: the economy continuously grows at a remarkble rate, people’s lives keep improving. On the road of development, Vietnam has been attaching great importance to solving social and environmental problems, poverty alleviation, maintaining social justice to assure sustainable progress. In 2006, Viet Nam achieved all UN Millennium Development Goals, ten years ahead of schedule. Until now, Viet Nam has economic and trade relations with most of the countries of the world. Viet Nam has been actively implementing a foreign policy of open, independent multilateralization and diversification.

We are committed to be a friend and a trustworthy partner of all nations and peoples striving for peace, solidarity, development and mutually beneficial cooperation. Viet Nam and Sri Lanka have been developing the traditional relations of friendship, mutual understanding and cooperation over many decades. The consular relations were established in 1964, then the bilateral relations were advanced to Ambassadorial level in 1970. Since 2009, Viet Nam-Sri Lanka bilateral relations have been expanding in all areas including: political and security, economic and trade, science and education, cultural, tourism, religion.
