President of the State of Parliament of Thuringia Christian Carius said he is willing to support the two sides to step up relations.

The legislator valued the Vietnamese community in the state, saying they demonstrate a successful integration example in Germany.

In his meeting with IHK Director Ralf Pieterwas, the Vietnamese official informed about the Embassy-hosted upcoming two workshops in Germany on June 22, together with a plan to arrange events in Thuringia to promote Vietnam’s tourism and opportunities for investment and business in the country.
