Vietnam is a leading manufacturing base for investors from Germany and the European Union, Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted said during phone talks with Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on Tuesday.

The talks were aimed to discuss measures to promote the German sportswear firm’s operations in Vietnam, according to the Vietnam Government Portal.

PM Chinh congratulated Adidas on its robust performance in 2021 despite challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The firm’s sustained operations in Vietnam indicate its determination and efforts, as well as the effectiveness of the close cooperation between Vietnamese government agencies and foreign investors.

The premier believed that Adidas will achieve greater successes and continue expanding its production in Vietnam, including creating conditions for Vietnamese firms to further engage in its global supply chain.

He asked the firm to continue upholding its social responsibility and ensuring welfare and suitable working conditions for Vietnamese workers.

The leader hoped that Adidas would further promote the economic, trade, and investment cooperation between Vietnam and Germany as well as the European Union.

Rorsted extended his thanks to PM Chinh and the Vietnamese government for creating favorable conditions for foreign enterprises, including Adidas.

Adidas praises the Vietnamese government's commitments to sustainable development, green growth, and emission reduction, the executive stated, stressing that Vietnam is a manufacturing base of leading importance and a destination for Germany and the European Union.

Rorsted appreciated Vietnam's support for Adidas to successfully cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and resume production in the Southeast Asian country.

He added he was impressed with Vietnam’s success in rolling out COVID-19 vaccination for its people, including workers, which helps ensure safety for production and business activities.
