Thuringia and Vietnam broaden their relationship

A large number of contacts, the signing of ten collaboration agreements and contracts, and a broader collaboration in business, science and skills management – this is the successful outcome of a seven-day trip taken by a Thuringian delegation to Vietnam at the beginning of November. A 75-strong delegation led by Minister-President Bodo Ramelow accepted an invitation extended by Vietnamese Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son and visited the economically vibrant Southeast Asian country.

The agenda was dominated by a wide range of topics from business and science to the recruitment of skilled workers. The Minister-President as well as Labor Minister Heike Werner and State Secretary for Economics Carsten Feller came on the trip. The delegation visited the major cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City as well as – for the first time – the city of Danang in central Vietnam and Phu Tho province in the north. The trip’s organizer, LEG, concluded a cooperation agreement with Phu Tho’s economic development agency. During the trip, young Vietnamese trainees also received certificates of participation, assuring them of training contracts in Thuringia from this year onwards. The delegation explored further collaboration options with Vietnamese partners regarding skilled workers; companies and universities developed new networks and expanded existing ones. (hw)
