Tokyo (VNA) – The Vietnamese Youths and Students’ Association (VYSA) in Japan debuted the executive board for the 2018-2019 tenure and reviewed its 2017 activities during a ceremony on January 14. 

More than 10 VYSA chapters reported their activities in 2017, saying that VYSA has become a prestigious organisation connecting Vietnamese youths and students in Japan together, contributing to popularising Vietnam, its culture, cuisine and people and fostering people-to-people exchange between the two countries.

VYSA also linked up the Vietnamese people in Japan in the fields of science, arts, and sports via scientific seminars, photo and sports competitions. It provided support for Vietnamese students and youths living in need such as offering scholarships for first-year students, vocational orientations, or holding job fairs.

VYSA Chairwoman for the 2018-2019 tenure Pham Thanh Huong said the association will create a foundation for Vietnamese nationals in Japan to share information in the near future.

She expressed her wish that VYSA chapters will foster solidarity via joint activities.

The association has also received assistance from Vietnamese and Japanese firms, including Vietnam’s FPT in Japan.-VNA
