International press trip in Ho Chi Minh City

During the run-up to the 14th Asia Pacific Conference (APK), a group of international journalists from Germany, Japan, Thailand, and Cambodia were invited by Siemens to join a press trip to Ho Chi Minh City. Dr. Roland Busch, member of the Siemens Managing Board in charge of Asia and Siemens Vietnam CEO Dr. Pham Thai Lai presented an overview of Siemens’s business opportunities in Vietnam to these media representatives.

To give them exclusive opportunities to look behind the scenes how an emerging economy such as Vietnam can quite literally power and manage its growth, we arranged the site visits to two major projects of Siemens in Vietnam: The Nhon Trach 2 Combined Cycle Power Plant which affirms Siemens’ leading position for combined cycle power plants on Vietnam’s market and the Bitexco Financial Tower – Ho Chi Minh City’s tallest building and Siemens Vietnam’s largest Total Building Solution project. Our journalists were also very amused to have chances riding on Siemens hybrid bus – the first prototype of its kind to be developed in Vietnam by Siemens and Vinamotor.
