German Chancellor Olaf Scholz arrived in Hanoi on Sunday, starting his two-day official visit to Vietnam at the invitation of Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh.

The welcome ceremony for Chancellor Scholz is scheduled for Sunday afternoon, followed by a meeting between the two countries’ government heads.

The German leader will also meet with Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong later the same day.

Chancellor Scholz and PM Chinh will attended a roundtable with Vietnamese and German businesses.

This is the first visit to Vietnam by a German chancellor in 11 years, since Angela Merkel's visit in October 2011.

The visit to Vietnam is part of Chancellor Scholz’s trip to East Asia, which is believed to show Berlin's interest in the Indo-Pacific region.

Germany is now Europe's leading economy and recently announced its own Indo-Pacific strategy.

Vietnam and Germany established diplomatic relations in 1975.

During Chancellor Merkel's visit to Vietnam in 2011, the two sides signed a joint statement to establish the strategic partnership, creating a foundation for cooperation in many fields.
