– The new government should set forth policies to
facilitate investment and connectivity between overseas Vietnamese and
Vietnamese-German entrepreneurs and experts in Germany with the homeland, said

their expectations of Vietnam’s newly-elected government.

Anh, President of the Vietnamese Students’ Association in Germany, stated that
the overseas Vietnamese community believes that the Party and State continue
putting forward sound leading policies to make the country thrive and
consolidate its relations with international friends, especially Germany and
Giving comments on the newly-elected Government head, Pham
Minh Chinh, both of them appreciated his experience gained through years of
working in many important positions.
Viet Anh said he believes that with the resoluteness and the
spirit of creativeness and innovation of the Government and the Prime Minister,
the bilateral economic and trade ties between Vietnam and Germany in particular
and the EU in general will grow further.
Regarding the role of the new government in the relations
with ASEAN and in conducting international missions and in ASEAN-EU
connectivity, he said that Vietnam is one of the driving forces of the ASEAN bloc.
Vietnam’s assumption of the role as the UN Security Council
Chair in April will surely create good influences on maintaining peace in the
East Sea, ASEAN and other regions around the world, he stated, adding that this
affirms the country’s position, but poses pressures on the new government in
leading the bloc and maintaining security in the East Sea.
Both intellectuals spoke highly of Vietnam’s recent efforts
to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and step up post-pandemic economic recovery and

succeeding in driving back the pandemic, maintaining political stability and
