​Message from Ambassador

Ladies and gentlemen, dear fellow countrymen, Vietnamese citizens and Israeli friends, 

I am delighted to welcome you to the website of the Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam in the State of Israel.

On May 8, 2022, I took up my duties as the Ambassador of Viet Nam to Israel. With new functions and responsibilities, I was delighted to receive a warm welcome from our long-time friends who have contributed, are contributing, and will continue to contribute to the development of relations between Viet Nam and Israel.

Viet Nam and Israel established diplomatic relations on July 12, 1993. Since then, we have witnessed multifaceted cooperation between Viet Nam and Israel develop strongly, especially in trade, high technology, agriculture, health, and recently, cooperation in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The future prospects for relations between the two countries are very good, especially since Viet Nam is promoting digital transformation and Israel has many strengths in high-tech solutions.

We are approaching the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Viet Nam and Israel. In 2023, and for many more years to come, I hope that Viet Nam and Israel will continue to work together to organize practical and meaningful activities and events, contributing to promoting people-to-people relations between the two countries and to bringing bilateral relations to a new height. 

I hope that in 2023 and the coming years, great progress will be made in bilateral relations following the conclusion of negotiations on the free trade agreement (VIFTA) and the labor cooperation agreement in the field of agriculture, as well as other cooperation programs in high technology, life sciences and new materials, among other areas, and that the fruitful results meet the expectations of the people and business communities in the provinces/cities of the two countries.

The website of the Vietnamese Embassy in Israel provides information on Viet Nam since “Đổi Mới”, the country’s dynamic relations with Israel, as well as the Embassy’s activities, consular services and efforts to build close connections with the Vietnamese community in Israel. I do believe this website will help readers get a more comprehensive view of Viet Nam, thereby serving as a basis for strengthening close connections between the two countries.

Although the website may fall short in certain areas, we will do our very best to improve the provision of official information on Viet Nam. We welcome your help and ideas for a friendlier and more informative website.

Wishing you happiness in life and success in work.

Many sincere thanks,

Ly Duc Trung

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of 

​​​the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam to Israel
