Vietnam always attaches importance to and wishes to further enhance cooperation with Germany in the coming time.

Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan made the remarks at a reception for
visiting Chairman of German Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs
Ruprecht Polenz in Hanoi on April 10.

Doan noted
with joy the fruitful development of the Vietnam-Germany strategic
partnership in various areas, which, she said, is attributable to active
contributions of the two countries’ legislators.

Thanking Germany for its official development assistance (ODA), she
affirmed Vietnam ’s commitment to using the aid effectively in
prioritised areas such as coping with climate change, sustainable
development, vocational training and health care.

The
leader took the occasion to praise the two countries’ legislative
bodies for engaging in an array of activities to enhance their mutual
understanding and trust and improve each side’s operation.

Polenz pledged that Germany will continue boosting cooperation with
Vietnam, especially in education and vocational training.

Host and guest considered the German House in Ho Chi Minh City and
the Vietnam-Germany University as symbols for cooperation between
the two countries.

Also the same day, Polenz was
received by Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan, during which the
Vietnamese leader said the relations between the two countries have
developed intensively and rapidly in various fields since they
established their strategic partnership.

The two
countries have regularly exchanged high-ranking delegations and enhanced
cooperation in culture, arts, science and technology, he said.

Nhan expressed his thanks to the German Government for creating
favourable conditions for over 130,000 overseas Vietnamese to live and
work in the country.

The Deputy PM briefed his guest
on Vietnam’s socio-economic achievements with an economic growth
rate of over 5 percent last year, thanks to the Vietnamese Government’s
flexible management measures.

Nhan said he wishes that
the fine relations between the two countries will be further
strengthened and developed in the time to come.

As an active ASEAN member, Vietnam is ready to work as a bridge between Germany and the group, he affirmed.

For his part, Polenz expressed his impression of Vietnam’s
socio-economic performance over the past time, saying he hopes that the
Vietnamese Government will create more favourable conditions for German
businesses to operate in the country.

Vietnam and
Germany will promote friendship and cooperation in numerous areas,
contributing to each side’s national construction and development, he
said.-VNA
