Welcoming German Foreign Minister Steinmeier

The Brief: 

The Vietnamese Foreign Office welcomed a formal visit by German Foreign Minister Steinmeier in November 2016. Terraverde managed the high-security logistics and transportation for the entirety of this political trip, requiring the tightest of execution for this international visit.


The German Consulate sent us an official request a month prior to the visit. The whole delegation included the Minister, German business leaders from the area, political aides, journalists, flight crew, bodyguards and other security, resulting in 60 participants. 

Terraverde worked closely with the German Foreign Minister’s security detail as well as local law enforcement officers to provide the required and necessary security and protection. It was a complex production requiring deep local knowledge, and collaboration with local government which our expert team was well equipped to provide. Our logistics team also needed to prepare thoroughly to deal with every possible circumstances and scenarios, including weather, flight changes, traffic and more. 

We put three main teams on constant stand-by at the airport, Park Hyatt Hotel and Caravelle Hotel in order to ensure that the process of picking–up and transferring the German Foreign Minister would stay on the minute-by-minute schedule. We conducted a city tour using three highly experienced guides.
