HCM City (VNA) – President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan has expressed wish that the overseas Vietnamese would popularise traditional culture to Vietnamese generations abroad and international friends.

He made the statement during a meeting in Ho Chi Minh City on January 20 with 100 outstanding overseas Vietnamese who will attend the annual Xuan Que Huong (Homeland Spring) programme scheduled for later this month.

Nhan informed them that the committee and several agencies are devising a plan to assist Vietnamese nationals abroad in preserving Vietnamese identity and language.

He wished that the overseas Vietnamese would join hands for the homeland development, especially in the field of start-up as well as contribute to tightening ties between Vietnam and international friends.

Several delegates suggested opening Vietnamese cultural centres abroad, making it easier for Vietnamese nationals to meet each other and introduce traditional culture to foreign friends.

They also urged relevant agencies to ease traffic congestion, deal with environment pollution and unsafe food while accelerating administrative reform to attract foreign direct investment.

It is necessary to increase external information services, diversify information channels and provide a full database on seas and islands sovereignty, they said, adding that start-up projects should consult intellectuals and businesspeople overseas to achieve the best results.

According to them, authorised agencies should closely liaison with the overseas Vietnamese communities abroad to bring more students to foreign countries to improve foreign language skills and expertise.-VNA
