On Tuesday 11 February a farewell audience was held at the Royal Palace.

The ambassador who is now leaving Sweden is the Socialist Republic of Vietnam's ambassador Doan Thi Phung Dung.

Just as an ambassador is received by The King on assuming his or her position in Sweden at a formal audience, a similar – albeit somewhat less formal – meeting is also held when the ambassador returns home again.
