Female ambassadors, wives of ambassadors and female diplomats from ASEAN countries in New Zealand gathered for an exchange held by the Vietnamese Embassy in Wellington on September 21.

Wife of the Vietnamese Ambassador to New Zealand Bui Thi Minh Tuyet said that activities within the framework of the ASEAN Ladies’ Circle (ALC) like this will help intensify mutual understanding and solidarity between women of ASEAN diplomatic offices in New Zealand.

The establishment of the ALC and its regular exchanges are significant, especially as the ASEAN Community forms at the end of this year, she affirmed.

At the event, delegates enjoyed traditional Vietnamese food and several ASEAN dishes.-VNA
