Berlin (VNA) – Vietnam’s Ambassador to Germany Doan Xuan Hung has made a trip to Rostock city in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state to promote German investment in Vietnam.

The Vietnamese Government is committed to providing the best possible support to German investors and is ready to talk to address outstanding problems encountered by foreign investors in Vietnam, the Ambassador said during his working sessions with the city’s officials on July 11.

Meeting with Rostock Mayor Roland Methling, President of the Rostock Council Wolfgang Nitzsche and Senator Peter Stein, Ambassador Hung said Vietnam has many seaports and port cities like Rostock, which holds potential for bilateral cooperation. 

According to him, there are about 176,000 Vietnamese in Germany and around 100,000 German-speaking Vietnamese in Vietnam, who serve as an important foundation for the two countries to enhance their relationship. 

The Rostock officials appreciated the integration and contributions of the Vietnamese community to the city and expressed their wish to partner with Vietnamese localities, particularly in areas of Rostock’s strength like industry, seaport and education. 

The same day, Ambassador Hung and his entourage visited Liebheer Group, which specializes in providing cranes for container handling. The group has operated in Vietnam since 1995. 

He suggested the group select Vietnam as a production base to supply products and services to other countries, especially ASEAN nations.  

The ambassador also visited the Dien Hong association which gathers Vietnamese in Germany. 

Rostock is the largest and most important city of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in terms of culture and economy and the second largest port city in Baltic, following Lubeck. -VNA
