Vietnam Airlines signed a cooperation agreement on September 7 to become the official carrier for the government of the German state of Hessen and the World University Service (WUS) on trips from Germany to all destinations operated by the national flag carrier.

The signing ceremony took place in the presence of Hessen’s Minister of Sciences and Arts, Mr. Boris Rhein, and members of its parliament.

Mr. Rhein and the parliamentary members arrived in Vietnam on a Vietnam Airlines’ flight from Frankfurt to Ho Chi Minh City to attend the tenth anniversary of Viet Duc University in southern Binh Duong province. He expressed his satisfaction with the quality of service provided by Vietnam Airlines and appreciated its contribution to supporting cooperation between Hessen and Vietnam.

Mr. Nguyen Hong Linh, Consul General of Vietnam in Frankfurt, stressed the importance of maintaining and strengthening the relationship with Hesse state and noted the cooperation of Vietnam Airlines with the embassy and consulate in maintaining and developing the relationship between Vietnam and Germany.

The choice of Hessen and WUS to engage Vietnam Airlines confirms the trust of international partners in the quality of services and professionalism of the national flag carrier and increases its prestige in Europe, a market with strict requirements in services.

According to Mr. Rhien, Germany had 304 FDI projects in Vietnam as at July, with total registered capital of over $1.8 billion, ranking it 20th out of 129 countries and territories with investment in Vietnam. The potential for the further development of economic cooperation between the two countries is substantial.

Hessen is located in the central west of Germany, covering an area of over 21,000 sq km with a population of about 6.1 million. It is one of the most economically-developed states in the country and attracts international visitors to its many famous historical and cultural sites. It is divided into 21 districts and five independent cities, of which Frankfurt is the largest.

WUS is an international and political organization operating in more than 50 countries and territories around the world. It plays a role as a focal point for all activities of the Hesse state government in Vietnam and is a founding member of the Viet Duc University.
