The G20 Summit will take place on July 7-8 under the theme “Shaping an Interconnected World”. Its three focuses are ensuring stability, improving viability for the future and accepting responsibility.
As the host of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in 2017, Vietnam is invited to attend meetings within the G20 framework this year, participate in all debate sessions of the G20 Summit and give opinions on the draft joint statement of the event.
Vietnam and Germany set up diplomatic ties on September 23, 1975. Since then, bilateral friendship and cooperation have been developing in an effective and comprehensive manner.
