Vietnam joins IHO

10 October 2015

In early September a flag-raising ceremony took place in Monaco to mark Vietnam becoming the 84th member state of the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO).

Amongst those in attendance were Deputy Commander and Chief of Staff of the Vietnam People's Navy Rear Adm Pham Xuan Diep and IHO President Robert Ward.

Vietnam applied for IHO membership in May 2011.
