NDO - Danish Ambassador John Nielsen, was presented with the insignia ‘For the Cause of Natural Resources and Environment’ at a ceremony in Hanoi on June 2.


Speaking at the ceremony, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Nguyen Minh Quang praised Nielsen for his role in promoting bilateral relations between the two countries, especially in the field of natural resources and the environment.
