Berlin (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has
expressed his wish that the German parliament would encourage investment in
Vietnam in fields of Germany’s strength such as energy equipment, railway,
support industry, medical equipment and pharmaceuticals, transport and tourism
infrastructure, bio-technology and food processing.

During a working session with Minister-President of
Rheinland-Pfalz state Malu Dreyer  in
Mainz city on July 5, the PM urged the German parliament to support the
establishment of the Germany-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group to
further strengthen friendship and cooperation between the two legislatures,
particularly in legislation and supervision.

He spoke highly of the state’s economic strengths in
tourism, information technology, chemicals and wine production, and suggested
exploring the possibility of collaboration in workforce development,
particularly training Vietnamese nurses in hospitals and medical stations in
the state.

Dreyer, who is also President of the German Federal Council,
hoped that new business opportunities will open up via the visit.

During a working session with Rheinland-Pfalz state Deputy Minister-President
and Minister for Economic Affairs, Transportation, Agriculture and Viniculture Volker
Wissing, PM Phuc affirmed that economic link is a pillar in the bilateral
strategic partnership and there remains room for bilateral economic, trade and
investment ties.

The Vietnamese government is ready to offer favourable
conditions to German corporations in Vietnam, contributing to deepening the
bilateral strategic partnership, he said.

German corporations such as Boehringer Ingelheim, BASF and
Hornbach also expressed their interest in doing business in Vietnam.

Rheinland-Pfalz was established on August 30, 1946 and is
now home to more than 4 million people, ranking seventh out of the 16 states
nationwide. Its major economies include tourism, industry, agriculture and
forestry. With six viniculture areas, the state is also the leading wine
producer in the country.-VNA
