German Ambassador Presents Credential to Vietnamese PresidentPosted: Friday, August 17, 2012
On August 14, German Ambassador to Vietnam Jutta Frasch presented the credential to Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang. With this ceremony, the German diplomat officially took office in Vietnam.
She stressed she will try her best to implement the commitments in the framework of strategic partnerships mentioned in the Joint Declaration signed in Hanoi in late 2011 and strengthen the two-way cooperation. One year after the signing of the Hanoi Declaration, this is the time to deploy the next step of lighthouse projects like German House or German International School in Ho Chi Minh City.
On this strategic partnership basis, Vietnam is an important partner of Germany in Southeast Asia. In return, Germany is the largest trade partner of Vietnam in the European Union. Their cooperation in such areas as culture, science and development has been closer than ever.
