The German Business Association in Vietnam
Welcome to the German Business Association in Vietnam!
The GBA has been one of the first foreign business associations in the country, starting its activities already back in 1995. Thus, 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of GBA in the country. Over that period of time, GBA has been and still the center point of German business life, culture and values in Vietnam. It helped/helps German businesses in developing their operations, advised/advises on a wide range of topics and created/creates opportunities for business and social exchange in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
Today, GBA has more than 300 members, a number that also reflects the opportunities and dynamics of the Vietnamese market. It is one of the largest foreign business associations in the country and a highly respected counterpart in the local community. In addition, GBA was one of the founding members of EuroCham in Vietnam, a partner association that combines the pan-European activities and interests in the country. A GBA membership automatically goes along with EuroCham membership to underpin our strong ties with the other European business communities.
To even further strengthen bilateral ties and trade exchange between Germany and Vietnam, GBA decided in January 2015 to merge with the future German-Vietnamese Chamber of Commerce, AHK. After achieving agreement of the GBA Board and the overwhelming majority of its members, GIC / AHK Vietnam has started the preparation procedure to found AHK Vietnam. The process is expected to be concluded soon. For more information on GIC / AHK please see the link on this page.
We hope our website will give you helpful information on GBA, our members, membership benefits and our activities. For any questions on GBA, our events or a membership application our office team will be there to support you. Together with our members we would be very happy to welcome you to our events and hopefully as a new GBA member as well.
See you soon – hen gap lai!
