The Consulate general of the Federal Republic of Germany HCM City and Deutsches Haus co-organised “A Piece of Germany” event in HCM City last Saturday to celebrate the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Germany, where both Vietnamese and expats living in HCM City got the chance to experience German products, food, culture and education.

Some well-known German companies present at the event were Bosch, Siemens, Otto Bock and Mercedes-Benz, to name a few. Vinfast, a Vietnamese automobile brand, also displayed its signature products at the event.

German Consul general Dr Josefine Wallat told the event that Vinfast and Bosch are partners, proving that Vietnamese and German firms have worked together to deliver quality products to domestic customers.

Visitors to the event could learn more about German education at the German Academic Exchange Service, the Goethe-Institut HCM City and the Vietnamese-German University booths, which offer German language courses and scholarships to study in Germany. According to Wallat, German education from the preschool to the university level can now be found in Vietnam.

Ice-cream, cakes and beer from German brands such as Haubis Vietnam and Thueringer Landstolz, Berlin Original Deutsch, Sophie’s Cake Heaven, Ralf’s Artisan Gelato, etc. were served at the event, allowing visitors a chance to experience German gastronomy.

To highlight Germany further to the Vietnamese public, the Consulate general created a new joint branding, “A Piece of Germany”, which visitors could find all over the festival grounds, while they explored German gastronomic delicacies, enjoyed a cold German beer or wine in the beer garden or watched a soccer shootout tournament at the event.
