INFOGRAPHIC: VIET NAM- GERMANY STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP
VGP - German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s official visit to Viet Nam from November 13-14 is expected to open up a new chapter in the two countries’ friendship and cooperation, showing the joint commitment and determination to lift the ties to a new height.
The visit is of great significance to the bilateral relationship, as Viet Nam and Germany are successfully implementing their Strategic Partnership Agreement over the past decade and gaining great achievements in economic and trade cooperation after more than two years enforcing the Viet Nam-EU Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), said Vietnamese Ambassador to Germany Vu Quang Minh.
This is also the first high-level visit between the two countries five years after Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc's visit to Germany in 2017.
On this occasion, Viet Nam and Germany will officially approve an Action Plan for 2023-2024 to promote the bilateral Strategic Partnership, and put forward a long-term vision for the ties from now to 2030 and beyond.
With the Action Plan and other important frameworks, on the basis of great achievements in bilateral cooperation over the past time, Viet Nam and Germany are seeing a golden opportunity to further promote cooperation in many fields, bringing the strategic partnership to a new height, not only in politics and security but also in economics, trade, science and technology, education and training, vocational training and labor cooperation.
