At a meeting with representatives from the Vietnamese community in the Republic of Korea (RoK) on March 10 to mobilize support for the fund, Hoa noted that academic investment for children is crucial, particularly those from ethnic minority groups.

Some 5,000 scholarships are presented to the needy every year, helping them overcome difficulties and contribute to society, she added.

At the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to the RoK Nguyen Vu Tu underlined the sound relations between Vietnam and the RoK in the past 25 years, particularly cooperation in education and people-to-people exchange.
