At the reception, the ambassador spoke highly of the important achievements Viet Nam has made in its socio-economic development, affirming that Germany always treasures the traditional friendship and multifaceted cooperation with Viet Nam.

He said his country wishes to actively support and foster the relationship between Viet Nam and the EU, including the early signing of the EVFTA.

In turn,  Binh said Viet Nam attaches importance to the traditional relationship with Germany and wishes to further enhance bilateral collaboration, especially in economy and trade.

Now, Germany is the largest trade partner of Viet Nam in the European Union (EU) in particular and Europe in general, with two-way trade in the first nine months of this year hitting nearly US$8 billion, an increase of 11% year-on-year, he said. 

The Vietnamese official expressed his wish that Germany and EU member countries will support the European Union-Viet Nam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), saying that the early signing and adoption of the deal will be a significant step to realise the EU’s Europe-Asia connectivity strategy as well as boost Viet Nam-Germany relations.

Mr. Binh hoped that Christian Berger will make active contributions to developing the bilateral ties in an effective and practical manner.
