Ambassador Antonio Alessandro expressed his honor to award the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic - Commander Class awarded by Italian President Sergio Mattarella to Binh, emphasizing that this is Italy's highest award for foreigners who have contributed to the relations between Italy and other countries.

“As an outstanding member of the Communist Party of Vietnam and a deeply knowledgeable person in the academic community, Mr. Phan Thanh Binh has always endeavored, trusted and supported the promotion of Italian culture in Vietnam as well as tightening the relationship between the two NA”, Alessandro said.

Along with that, the awarding of the Order of Merit to Binh is also a way of expressing the appreciation of Italy for the important role of Vietnam's NA.

Expressing his honor and thanks to the State of Italy and Ambassador Antonio Alessandro, Binh said that this is a recognition, a testament to the friendly and effective cooperation between the two countries. The two countries' relations has been established for nearly 50 years and since then, has been increasingly tight and effective, especially after the two countries upgraded to a strategic partnership in 2013 on the occasion of the official visit to Italy by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.

"This Order to me is an important mark of my tenure in the NA, recognizing my contributions to the Vietnam-Italy relations", Binh said.
