Thai Binh (VNA) – The People’s Committee of northern Thai Binh province on January 23 presented nearly 450 gifts to Lao, Cambodian and Mozambican students who are studying at the Thai Binh University of Medicine and Pharmacy, each worth 250,000 VND (10.8 USD), on the occasion of the upcoming lunar New Year.

The recipients include 281 Lao, 163 Cambodian and 4 Mozambican students.

Speaking at the event, Vice Chairwoman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Thi Linh said the upcoming Lunar New Year festival will afford students a chance to learn about the Vietnamese tradition, thereby fostering friendship and solidarity between the Vietnamese State and people and fellows from Laos, Cambodia and Mozambique.

She asked the provincial chapter of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations to offer all possible support to the foreign students as well as promote friendship and people-to-people cooperation with Lao, Cambodian and Mozambican localities.

The university has trained Lao students since 1969, and Cambodia and Mozambican students since 1982 and 2016, respectively.

Among the 598 Lao students in the university, 317 have completed their studies and returned home. Meanwhile, 451 out of the 614 Cambodian students have also come back to their homeland after graduation.

In 2016, the university welcomed four Mozambican students.-VNA
