The Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) pledges support to Vietnamese women’s activities abroad in general and Germany in particular, said the union’s President Nguyen Thi Thanh Hoa.

Hoa made the commitment while meeting with representatives from Vietnamese women’s associations in Germany during her three-day visit to the country.

Representatives at the meeting briefed her on the difficulties and insufficiencies in their movements, expressing hope to receive more support from the Party, State and VWU, particularly in sharing experiences and ways to attract more participants.

The VWU President spoke highly of the initiatives and effective action models of the Vietnamese women in Germany , and said she will give out appropriate recommendations to step up activities for women abroad.

Earlier the same day, Hoa met with Vice President of the German National Council of Women Organisations Brigitte Triems.

The two sides exchanged their experiences in encouraging women to join national and international women organisations, raising public awareness of women’s roles and position, as well as working for their rights and equality in society.

They also agreed to further enhance mutual understanding between the two sides for future cooperation.

On October 16, Hoa and her escort presented gifts to children at a Vietnamese-German bilingual nursery school, the first ever bilingual education model for Vietnamese, German and international children of pre-school age in the country.

The VWU President and Vietnamese Ambassador to Germany Nguyen Thi Hoang Anh highly valued the model.

They shared the hope that it will be expanded to help Vietnamese people better integrate into German society, while sustaining their Vietnamese origin and culture.-VNA
