Bremeninvest, a trade and investment services provider from Bremen in Germany, has announced the opening of a representative office in Ho Chi Minh City in the hope of pushing up trade cooperation in Vietnam. The agency operates as a link between the German state of Bremen and Vietnam in two-way trade and business activities.

Bremeninvest is the common name for Bremen’s economic development agency, Wirtschaftsförderung Bremen GmbH (WFB), which specializes in meeting the needs of international customers and offers one-stop support services for business requirements.

Bremen is an industrial and port city in Germany that is home to leading industries in the automobile, aviation, logistics, and wind energy sectors, which are sectors Bremen hopes to partner with Vietnamese enterprises in. Ms. Hoang Thi Huong has been appointed Chief Representative of the Bremeninvest Office in the southern city.

“Vietnam is considered a bridge to Southeast Asia and one of the emerging markets in the region, and its high GDP growth of nearly 7 per cent arouses great interest in Germany,” Mr. Martin Gunthner, Minister of Economic Affairs, Labour, and Ports in Bremen told VET.

“Vietnam is an important partner of Germany in general and Bremen in particular in Southeast Asia,” he went on. “Bremen is a maritime city with large ports so we have a lot of experience and advantages to share with Vietnam about maritime trade and we are also a potential partner in those sectors. With representative offices in Shanghai and Turkey, we decided to set up an office in Ho Chi Minh City as we see huge opportunities in Vietnam.”

“The establishment of the Ho Chi Minh City representative office demonstrates a strategic vision in early participation and promises to be a platform for even greater trade relations between Bremen and ASEAN countries,” German Consulate General Andreas Siegel told the opening ceremony.

Pleased about the new challenges, CEO of WFB Andreas Heyer, CEO of WFB, said: “we are not only constructing a bridge for Vietnamese companies coming to Bremen, but also helping companies from Bremen do business in Vietnam. Vietnam holds potential for growth in the sectors of maritime economics, logistics, renewable energies, automotive, and food and beverages.”

The Bremeninvest Office in will bring Bremen’s quality of life and economic appeal to the attention of business and research communities in Germany and Vietnam, helping companies with all matters related to their development. It provides uncomplicated, expert advice on relocations, property searches, and innovation projects. It also acts as an interface between business, research, and public authorities and always identifies the best solutions for businesses.

The new representative office advises investors as well as those interested in settling in Vietnam and supports them in the search for a location and acquisition in Bremen. They can use the contact network in Vietnam, receive individual advice on business interests, and have opportunities to attend joint trade fairs and specialist events.
