Overseas Vietnamese from all walks of life in Russia and Germany have expressed confidence in greater success on the path towards a modern industrial nation after the new Party leadership is voted into office.

Doan Thi Kim Hoa, Director of the Indochina Tourist Company, which has been operating in Russia for 20 years, told Vietnam News Agency that she believed the ongoing National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam would conclude in success and bring out sound policies to encourage overseas Vietnamese to contribute to the development of their native land.

She said the Party Politburo resolution No. 36 on overseas Vietnamese has met home-sick expatriates’ demands and aspirations. However, she recommended the Party and State consider and work out better policies to put into full use the huge potential of the overseas Vietnamese community in service of the national development.

Nguyen Cao Cuong, President of the over 2,000-strong Association of Vietnamese Students in Russia and a young Party member, said the Party and State should create better conditions for students to study abroad and return home to contribute to national construction.

Talented students should be given chances to go abroad for higher education and improve their knowledge so that they will better contribute to the national development after coming back, said the student leader in Russia.

Le Thi Nha, from a remote rural village in the midland province of Phu Tho, who has worked as a housemaid in Russia since 2007, spoke of her gratitude to the Party and State for doing a good job in poverty alleviation.

“I expect that the Party will continue with such a great effort to improve the living conditions for the poor, people in remote areas and natural disaster victims,” said the guest worker.

Nguyen The Sang, who runs a business in Germany and is also President of the Poetry Lovers Club and Vice Chairman of the Vietnamfoto Club, said every day after work, he tried to access the internet and watch the central TV station (VTV4) to follow the situation at home. The habit has become stronger since January 12 when the Party Congress opened, Sang said.

The Party will certainly elect a talented and ethical leadership to work out sound and long-term policies in order to speed up renewal and advance the nation, said the businessman.

He said his poetry club will hold a gala night in February to celebrate the Lunar New Year Festival and the success of the Party Congress.

Chu Van Hoa, Vice Chairman of the Vietnam People’s Army Veterans’ Association in Berlin , Germany , said the Party Politburo resolution No. 36 on overseas Vietnamese has worked in meeting expatriates’ aspirations since it considers the overseas Vietnamese community as an integral part of the nation.

“The Vietnamese community in Berlin closely follows the Party Congress and strongly believes that it will be wrapped up with success and the new leadership will work out sound strategies and policies to help the nation overcome challenges and difficulties to meet the target of democracy and prosperity,” said the army veteran./.
