Welcome greeting


by Mr. Tran Bach Giang
President of Vietnam Association of Geodesy,
Cartography and Remote Sensing.

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is an honor and great pleasure for me and the Vietnam Association of Geodesy, Cartography and Remote Sensing (VGCR) to welcome and invite you all to the 2019 FIG Working Week in Hanoi, Vietnam.

It is our utmost honor and prestige to host this very big event on the special occasion of the 60th anniversary of Surveying and Mapping Day of Vietnam (14/12/1957 – 14/12/2019) and the 30th anniversary of VGCR (1989-2019).

With our proposed overall theme “For Spatial Enablement of Each Citizen”, it is a great chance for Vietnam to promote our achievement and progress in the field of surveying and data management.  Particularly, it is an important opportunity for great development and connection for the Vietnamese professionals, experts and surveyors to approach to the world’s scholars as well as the occasion for the world experts to help Vietnam to address all our concerns and issues as the fact that Vietnam is one of the most five countries in the world being suffered consequence from climate changes, especially the threat of sea level rise.


Hanoi – a city of safety, beautiful landscapes, delicious
cuisines, and charming people is waiting for you.

I look forward to welcome you to Hanoi,
Vietnam in April 2019.
