The Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) and the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Vietnam (GIC) will organise a forum to build business connections between the two countries in Hanoi on October 13 and in Ho Chi Minh City on October 15.

The forum hopes to draw a dozen of businesses from eastern German states that are active in various fields such as construction, mechanics, chemicals and agriculture.

Business communities will take the opportunity to share experiences in manufacturing and technology transfer as well as promote their countries.

The strategic partnership between Vietnam and Germany has developed strongly over recent years.

Germany is one of the leading trade partners of Vietnam in the European Union (EU), with trade reaching nearly 8 billion EUR last year and recording an average growth of 15-20 percent over the past five years.

Vietnam mainly exported mobile phones and spare parts, garment-textiles, footwear, coffee and seafood to Germany while importing machinery and equipment.
