During a working session with Chairman of Ha Noi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung on January 31, the Ambassador said the 45th anniversary is an important milestone in bilateral relations, and asked for support from Ha Noi’s administration so that the celebration will be a success. 

She said the special event, to be held at the Dien Hong flower garden (also known as the Con Coc garden) in Ha Noi’s centre, will be a fashion show featuring works by Italian designers and Vietnamese silk-making artisans.

The Ambassador expressed her hope that the show will create an impression on local people in the way the Italian cultural week in Ha Noi did last November, adding that the celebration will be the last event she organizes in Hanoi before ending her term in Vietnam in June this year. 

Ambassador Cecilia Piccioni asked for permission from the Ha Noi People’s Committee’s Chairman to restore the original look of the Dien Hong garden, which is near the Italian Embassy and is dubbed the Italian corner in Vietnam by embassy staff. 

She thanked Ha Noi authorities for their support of Italy’s World City project, noting that a delegation from the project will visit Ha Noi soon with the wish to have a working session with the Ha Noi People’s Committee’s Chairman on February 6. 

Chairman Nguyen Duc Chung pledged coordination with the Italian Embassy for the successful organisation of the special event. 

He affirmed that he will meet with the World City project delegation to learn from experience in building a smart city. 

The official also talked about his intention to invite an Italian shipbuilding company to Ha Noi to help the city seek a suitable way to develop tourism on the West Lake.
