Deputy Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son and Secretary of State to the German Federal Ministry for Foreign Affairs Markus Ederer co-chaired the event.

The two sides agreed on measures to implement upcoming projects between Vietnam and Germany, especially in politics, trade-investment, education-training, science-technology and judicial, and legal affairs.

Deputy Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son said he hopes the two nations will boost connectivity and support the business community in the respective markets while optimizing opportunities from the free trade agreement between Vietnam and the European Union (EU).

Secretary of State Markus Ederer suggested both countries strengthen coordination under the dialogue program between the two countries in 2015-2018.

The two diplomats agreed to push the signing of the Vietnam-EU Free Trade Agreement.

The German side pledged to support Vietnam to enhance relations with the EU, implement the Vietnam-EU Framework Agreement on Comprehensive Partnership and Cooperation, and persuade the union to recognize Vietnam’s market economy status.

Both nations committed to increasing cooperation and mutual support at multilateral forums, especially at the United Nations, the Asia-Europe Meeting, and the ASEAN-EU cooperation framework.
