A liaison board for the Vietnamese community in Malaysia was introduced in a ceremony held at the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia on January 11.

Head of the board Tran Hong Chung said that the 10-member group will act as a bridge connecting Vietnamese people with the embassy while also encouraging them to support each other, maintain their national cultural identities and abide by the host country’s laws.

It will also help consolidate and develop the bilateral friendship and partnership, he added.

The liaison board has already coordinated with the Vietnamese Embassy to hold a New Year get-together for the Vietnamese community in Malaysia.

More than 200 participants enjoyed Vietnamese traditional dishes, joined art performances and participated in sport activities.-VNA
