Representatives from over 200 international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the northern region gathered in Hanoi on September 26 for a regular meeting hosted by the Committee on Foreign Non-Governmental Organisations Affairs.

Participants were provided with information on NGOs’ activities in Vietnam in the first eight months of this year, while discussing guidelines for administrative procedures of the People’s Aid Coordinating Committee (PACCOM).

They heard a national programme on promoting to mobilise foreign NGO aid for the 2013-2017 period and a plan on the third international conference on partnership between Vietnam and foreign non-governmental organisations.

The regular foreign NGO meeting aimed to strengthen exchange of information with foreign non-governmental organisations, and create favourable conditions on administrative procedures for operations of foreign NGOs.-VNA
