VGP – The HCM City  chapters of the Viet Nam Union of Friendship Organisations and the Vietnam-Germany Friendship Association (VDFG) have held a ceremony for the 27th anniversary of German Unity Day (October 3, 1990- October 3, 2017).

Wilhelm Meyer, Attaché for Cultural and Economic Affairs at the German Consulate General in the City, said that the time-honoured friendship between Germany and Viet Nam has experienced strong development, reflected through cooperation projects in culture, education, trade and investment.

The increasing number of German investors in Viet Nam and the upcoming inauguration of the German House in HCM City manifest the attention Germany has paid to Viet Nam as its important partner in the region, he added.

President of the VDFG’s HCM City chapter Nguyen Huu Thien stated that the city is one of the localities with the most cooperation activities with Germany, particularly in the fields of culture, education, trade and investment, thus helping tighten relations between the two nations.

While appreciating the coordination and support from the German Consulate General and the German Business Association in implementing key cooperation projects in the city, Thien affirmed that his association will continue organising people-to-people diplomacy activities with German partners in order to further develop the bilateral ties.

The ceremony was held to celebrate the long-lasting partnership of Germany and Viet Nam, which was officially established in 2011.
