The Hau Giang provincial chapter of the Vietnam–Republic of Korea Friendship Association (VRFA) will assist local brides marrying Korean men in language training in the time to come, making it easier for them to adapt to their new environment.

At the chapter’s first Congress for the 2013 – 2018 term held in the southern province, delegates heard that the provincial Women’s Union and VRFA have studied policies on women’s issues and gender equality in the RoK in a bid to help brides-to-be understand immigration procedures as well as the RoK’s culture and people.

It is known that more Vietnamese women marry Korean men to seek material comfort. However, divorce rates are on the rise as the Vietnamese wives are not fully aware of the host country’s customs and language.

The chapter will also work to bridge economic, trade, science, cultural and tourism links between Hau Giang organisations and their Korean partners.

The Congress elected a new Executive Committee for the new term comprising of 9 members. Huynh Thuy Trinh was named as its Chairwoman.-VNA
