In his congratulatory remarks, Hung said the Honorary Consul of Vietnam has worked effectively and greatly contributed to the two countries’ relations as seen in the activities boosting economic partnerships, locality-to-locality ties, and cultural exchanges.

Scagliotti is a researcher on Vietnam and has written many works on the country which have helped introduce the Vietnamese culture to Italian people, he said, noting that she and her husband, Fulvio Albano, have also helped run the Italy - Vietnam Chamber of Commerce in Turin, thus strengthening trade links between the two countries.

He described Scagliotti as a friend of Vietnam whose contributions are highly significant to Vietnam and bilateral relations, adding the re-appointment reflects the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry’s appreciation of her efforts.

Expressing her honour to be re-appointed, Scagliotti pledged to continue effectively contributing to the development of Vietnam - Italy relations.
