Prof. Thomas Engelbert of the University of Hamburg in Germany said Monday that Vietnam’s success in the fight against COVID-19 has been recognized all over the world, and its stable economic growth is a great achievement of the Vietnamese government. According to economist Daniel Müller of the German Asia-Pacific Business Association (OAV), Vietnam’s new Prime Minister, State President, and National Assembly Chairman all have realistic viewpoints and actively act toward specific goals and results. With the new government, Vietnam is still consistent with the political guideline set out at the 13th National Party Congress, he said.
Vietnamese intellectuals in Germany expressed their expectations for Vietnam’s new government. Professor Nguyen Van Thoai of the University of Trier lauded Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh’s experience gained through years of working in many important positions. He believes Mr. Chinh will put forward sound policies to make Vietnam thrive.
Doctor Nguyen Viet Anh, President of the Vietnamese Students’ Association in Germany, said the Vietnamese government has obtained great economic achievements thanks to policies like boosting the digital economy and focusing on technological innovation. Vietnam’s assuming the role of UN Security Council Chair in April will surely have a good influence on maintaining peace in the East Sea, ASEAN and other regions around the world, he said.
