Senior officials of the central province of Quang Binh on April 10 met with over 40 overseas Vietnamese (OVs) from 20 countries and territories who returned home to attend the Hung Kings festival.

Deputy Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Tien Dung, at the event, recalled the local recovery after the 2013 storms which was partly attributable to the support of OVs at home and abroad.
He expressed his hope that they will offer more help to the locals in the coming time.

On the occasion, the guests also donated 40 million VND (1,900 USD) to the Duc Ninh centre for children with disabilities, plus gifts to the provincial chapter of the Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange/dioxin.

They also offered incense and laid a wreath at the tomb of General Vo Nguyen Giap in Quang Trach district, and later toured several tourist attractions in the locality.-VNA
