Chinese Ambassador to Vietnam Hong Xiaoyong and embassy staff presented educational equipment to the Dai An junior high school in Dai An commune, Vu Ban district of northern Nam Dinh province on June 2.

The diplomat said the Chinese Embassy continually supports welfare and educational projects in Vietnam, adding that the presented equipment, worth over 400 million VND (over 19,000 USD), represented the embassy’s assistance to local students.

He said he hopes working visits to Vietnamese localities will help improve mutual understanding and friendship between the two peoples, ultimately deepening the countries’ comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership.

Vietnamese Deputy Foreign Minister Vu Hong Nam thanked the embassy for its support to Vietnamese students and said the practical gifts help local teachers and students gain access to modern educational facilities.

On this occasion, the Chinese Ambassador also met with Nam Dinh officials.-VNA
