PHILIPP ROESLER, of Vietnamese Descent. to Head the Health Ministry in Germany, as his own Party Plans to Push for more Free Market and Higher Fees in the National Health Care Service Industry

By Kevin Stoda, Germany

Philipp Roesler, born Khan Hooa in Vietnam, has been selected to become the Minister of Health Care during this second term of governance under Chancellor Angela Merkel in Germany starting this very week.

Roesler is the first South-East-Asian-born German to be appointed to such a high post in Germany. Roessler is an eye doctor by profession and is known as a man-of-the-people, especially due to the tone he displays when he speaks. Moreover, Roesler is quite able to take complicated themes and articulate them in simple & understandable ways for a mass audience. Roesler is only 36 years old and is thus the youngest cabinet member as well.


With Roesler's own party, the FDP (Free Liberal Democratic Party), leading the way for Health Care reforms (especially in the area of decreased spending) in Germany over the coming months and years, the young politician, Philipp Roesler, has agreed to take on a daunting position at this time. Interestingly, Roesler also currently claims he will retire from politics by the age of 45. Perhaps this means, Roesler plans to be unpopular but get the job-done, which he will be setting out to do.

In the meantime, Roesler is considered a rising star all over the German political landscape. That is, he is possibly more popular than other politician at this moment in Berlin.
