Canada will have a new embassy in Hanoi in 2024 and the campus will be located in a more accessible location, with an open and modern space that meets all criteria for sustainable development, Canadian Ambassador to Vietnam Shawn Steil stated on Thursday. The ambassador was speaking at a press conference conducted in Hanoi on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Canada. Accordingly, the new embassy compound will be opened next year, right on the 30th anniversary of Canada opening its embassy in Vietnam, the ambassador told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper. Vietnam and Canada established diplomatic relations on August 21, 1973, but it was not until November 1994 that Canada opened an embassy in Hanoi. In Vietnam, Canada’s consulate general and embassy held celebrations on August 21 and 24, respectively.
