The Vietnamese community in Germany is increasingly integrating into society and making substantial contributions to the economy in the Germany State of Brandenburg.
Dr. Karin Weiss, Brandenburg’s Commissioner of Immigration, stated this at a recent reception for the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese, Nguyen Thanh Son, in Potsdam, the capital of Brandenburg.
Weiss underlined the enormous potential for the traditional friendship between Brandensburg and Vietnam and said that he believed this visit would consolidate relations between the two sides, especially in economics and investment.
Deputy Minister Nguyen Thanh Son asked his German hosts to continue helping the Vietnamese community to develop the economy and integrate into German society. He also mentioned the possibility of twining the cities of Potsdam and Hue , as they share many similarities.
Earlier on August 25, Son had a meeting with representatives of the Vietnamese community in Berlin and asked them to foster solidarity and set up a Vietnamese Association in Germany to ensure the interests of Vietnamese people living in the country./.
