With the Federal President to Vietnam & Thailand

Dr. Heike Wenzel accompanies Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on a delegation trip to Vietnam and Thailand

This week, Dr. Heike Wenzel, Managing Director of WENZEL Group GmbH & Co. KG and President of the Aschaffenburg Chamber of Industry and Commerce, is taking part in a trip to Vietnam and Thailand as part of a German business delegation. The trip is part of the state visit by German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who will be visiting the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the Kingdom of Thailand from January 22 to 27, 2024.

With this trip, the Federal President is underlining Germany's goal of deepening and diversifying political and economic relations with the Southeast Asian states. Dr. Heike Wenzel will take part in talks with local companies focusing on the prospects for economic and trade relations.

Talks, state banquet and inspiring visits
After a flight from Berlin to Hanoi and a short stopover at the hotel, interesting talks were held with representatives of the embassy as well as political and economic players in Vietnam. The highlight of the day was the state banquet with the Vietnamese president.

The visit to the German House and the Vietnamese German University (VGU) in Ho Chi Minh City provided numerous stimuli and enabled meetings with interesting personalities from business and politics. The delegation looks forward to further productive discussions and is looking forward to deepening bilateral relations in the coming days.

Asian market of outstanding importance

The second stop on the delegation's trip was Thailand. The country of smiles gave the delegation a warm welcome. The program included joint meetings with the Federal President and numerous small group discussions with representatives from politics and business.

Asia is now of outstanding importance for WENZEL as the second largest market after Europe. In Vietnam and Thailand in particular, there are considerable opportunities for the further development of our activities. In recent years, many companies have established production facilities here and we look forward to making a contribution to ensuring process and product quality with our measuring machines.

At the end of the trip, we had the opportunity to get to know the country better by visiting a pilot farm for sustainable agriculture, a raft trip to the floating photovoltaic plant and a short hike in the national park.
