Learning from the European champion of logistics
One of Vietnam’s major current projects involves the development of regional logistics hubs. A delegation featuring members of the Ministry of Transportation, representatives of the Ba Ria Vung Tau province and consultancy firms visited Bremerhaven in 2014 to find out how the logistics hub works in the port city. Companies that operate in the maritime industry and logistics sector are looking at this development and identifying opportunities for future collaboration. It will enhance trade between Vietnam and the rest of the globe. In March 2019, Bremeninvest is inviting interested companies from Bremen to visit INMEX in Ho Chi Minh City, an international trade fair for the maritime industry that takes place every two years.
Learning from each other
But it is not just companies that are interested in expanding to Bremen or Vietnam. Universities and other institutions of higher education are also planning to extend their exchange programmes. “The universities in Bremen and in Vietnam are very interested in deeper collaboration,” says Hoang. “We are helping them to find suitable partners in the respective countries.” In Bremen, the Technology Park is the home of the University of Bremen and the location of many research institutes and high-tech companies.

In Bremen’s northern district, Hoang and Kühn visited the international Jacobs University, which already offers training programmes for Chinese companies. Vietnamese firms could also send their junior executives to Bremen in order to further their education and build a lasting relationship with the city. “It’s an interesting programme,” says Kühn. ”Educating students from Bremen and abroad and training highly skilled employees is a win-win situation for everyone.”
Bremen – a place to live and work
“I enjoyed my stay in Bremen a lot,” says Hoang, summing up her visit. “The city is quite peaceful and modern, but not too crowded.” During her weekend there, she met other Vietnamese people who have been living and working in Bremen for some time. “It was good to sit with them on the Schlachte Embankment by the Weser river. We got to talk about Bremen and Vietnam, and I saw how proud they were to be part of the Bremen business community.”
