Meet & Greet - FNF Summer Reception 2019

At the beginning of 2019, many significant events contributed to the strengthening of the German-Vietnamese partnership. In particular, the visit of Minister Pham Binh Minh to Berlin led to the resumption of the strategic partnership between the two countries. As a countermove, the German Federal Minister of Economics and Energy, Peter Altmaier visited Hanoi in March to intensify the extensive cooperation in the fields of politics, economy and society.

These gratifying developments lead to positive impulses for the activities of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation (FNF) in Vietnam. The focus of their work will continue to be on supporting the market economy in Vietnam through cooperation projects, exchanges and training programs. In particular, this year FNF dedicate themselves to supporting the private sector, promoting young entrepreneurs and supporting the entrepreneurship culture. 

On Thursday, 16 May 2019, GBA Chairman – Mr Thomas Debelic attended the event “Meet & Greet – FNF Summer Reception” in Hanoi. The event also welcomed many distinguished guests and representatives from the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO), the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and the Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam–Germany Friendship Association (HVGFA) as well as representatives from private sector in Vietnam.
The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) is Germany’s liberal foundation and has close ties to Germany’s liberal Free Democratic Party (FDP). All their work is guided by liberty as its fundamental value. Being active in Germany and in around 60 project countries worldwide, they promote freedom, human rights, the rule of law, and market-based economies. Mr Moritz Kleine-Brockhoff, Head of the Regional Office of FNF will continue leading the FNF Vietnam after their Country Director Mr Mark Stanitzki will end his term by end of May this year.
