New York (VNA) - The Association of Vietnamese Professionals and Students in the US is organising the “Vong Tay Nuoc My 8” (the US’s arm 8) event from October 9 to 11 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Vietnam-US diplomatic relations.

A wide range of activities are planned, including a talk on bilateral ties and the opportunities for young Vietnamese to study and work in the US.

Employment workshops and job fairs at the event are expected to open up new opportunities for young people to develop their soft skills. They will also receive valuable advice while attending career consultation seminars on business, technology, science-technology education, and economy-finance education.

The event also features a Virtual Running tournament and online game tournaments, like FIFA, Valorant, and League of Legends.

The Vietnamese community is particularly interested in the Got Talent and Journey contests in the US, where they can show off their talent as well as express their feelings about life and their experience in the US.

An Gala Night awards ceremony will go online on October 11, attended by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs Dang Minh Khoi and Vietnamese Ambassador to the US Ha Kim Ngoc./.
