HCM City (VNA) - The Ho Chi Minh City chapter of the Vietnam–Cambodia Friendship Association (VCFA) should further promote and renovate operation methods, towards making its activities more effective, said VCFA Chairman Vu Mao.

Speaking at the chapter’s congress in the city on June 9, Mao praised the organisation for its recent remarkable contributions to promoting the relations between Vietnam and Cambodia, and specifically between HCM City and Cambodia.

In the coming time, VCFA and its chapters need to intensify communication campaigns in order to educate Vietnamese and Cambodian people, especially youths, on traditional relations, friendship and cooperation between the two nations, he stressed.

Participants to the congress elected a fifty-two member executive board. Truong Minh Nhut was re-elected as Chairman of the chapter for 2016-2021.

They also determined some key tasks in the next tenure, with a focus on popularising the Vietnam-Cambodia relations to further deepen the traditional friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two nations.

The chapter will enhance activities to introduce investment and cooperation opportunities, thus boosting economic links between the two countries. It will also pay attention to supporting Cambodian and Vietnamese-Cambodian students, who are pursuing studies in HCM City.

Established in 1979, the VCFA’s Ho Chi Minh City chapter is working to assist the Cambodian Consulate General in HCM City in organising friendship exchanges between the two countries’ people, and help disadvantaged people in Vietnam and Cambodia.-VNA
