Hanoi (VNA) – Overseas Vietnamese across the globe have hosted a wide range of activities to celebrate the traditional Lunar New Year (Tet) festival.

In Thailand, the Vietnamese Embassy in Bangkok organised a talk on President Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts, morals and lifestyle and a New Year party for Vietnamese living and working in the capital city.

The Lunar New Year festival has become more significant for Vietnamese expatriates in Thailand when a Vietnamese language school was inaugurated in Khanh An Pagoda, the northeastern city of Udon Thani on January 24.

The school will offer Vietnamese language classes for Vietnamese in Udon Thani and the whole northeastern region of Thailand.

In Mongolia, on January 25, the Vietnamese Embassy organised a Tet celebration for Vietnamese living in the country. At the ceremony, Ambassador Phan Dang Duong wished the Vietnamese community a happy new year. Hailing the developing relationship between Vietnam and Mongolia, the diplomat expressed hope that overseas Vietnamese will continue serving as a bridge for further promoting the bilateral ties.

On January 26, a similar event took place in Rome, the capital city of Italy, offering a chance for Vietnamese people here to celebrate the Lunar New Year.-VNA
