The Vietnamese Students’ Association in Western Australia (VISAWA) made public at a ceremony on October 26 with a range of activities ahead.

Addressing the event, Consul General Le Viet Duyen praised efforts made by overseas Vietnamese students in the formation of the association, a common house where they support each other while studying and living in the host country.

He encouraged the students to contribute to heightening Vietnam’s role and position in Australia and deepening the comprehensive partnership between Vietnam and Australia as well as Western Australia in particular.

The VISAWA’s provisional executive board announced the association’s pragmatic plans of action in the coming time, including its first congress, activities to celebrate the Vietnamese Teachers’ Day (November 20) and promote Vietnamese culture in Western Australia.
