The “Deutschlandfest 2017” will take place for the first time at Saigon Zoo and Botanical Garden in Ho Chi Minh City on April 22, said Germany Consul General to the city Andreas Siegel said at a press conference on April 19.

The festival aims to popularise Germany to HCM City residents as well as further strengthen the relationship between the two nations.

Attending the event, 300 German businesses operating in Viet Nam will introduce their latest products in the fields of environment, high-tech, health and education, especially the technologies to turn waste water into clean water.

Many Vietnamese artists will perform at the festival along with a hip-hop band from Germany.

Organisers hope that the event will attract more than 5,000 visitors.
