1. Vietnam and Italy relations

Vietnam and Italy officially established diplomatic relations on March 23rd, 1973.

Italy was one of the first European countries to resume and develop economic cooperation with Vietnam. Some Italian syndicates started operating and got remarkable results in Vietnam such as Technip Italy with a project to build the Phu My Fertiliser Plant; Danieli Officina with a steel factory; Fiat Iveco with a project to set up the Mekong Automobile Joint Venture; and Piaggio scooters.
