Vietnam Looking to Strengthen Ties with Germany’s Cottbus City

    Speaking at the meeting, the Ambassador said that the relationship between Vietnam and Germany is flourishing in multiple areas, particularly following the visit to Vietnam last November by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. This is a positive sign for both countries, as well as between Cottbus and Vietnamese localities, to continue deepening their cooperation.

    Minh expressed his hope that Cottbus will consider twinning with a Vietnamese city to boost cooperation and people-to-people exchanges. Furthermore, the two sides could also foster collaboration in higher education and vocational training, especially in the area of nursing.
