Lauding the results gained by the association over the past time, Ambassador Nguyen Thanh Hai affirmed the Party and State’s consistent policy of taking the overseas Vietnamese (OV) community as an inseparable part and an important resource of the nation.

Accordingly, the embassy takes affairs relating to OVs as a focus and always supports them in strengthening their legal status, protecting their legitimate rights, and stabilizing their lives and integrating into the host society, Hai added.
