He expressed his hope that overseas Vietnamese will support each other and contribute more to national construction.

Dung also hailed the contributions made by overseas Vietnamese to HCM City’s development, saying remittances to the city in 2019 reached 5.3 billion USD, the highest in the country.

The committee took the occasion to launch a writing contest on 15 years of the summer camp held for young overseas Vietnamese, which was postponed this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Entries can be sent to the Organizing Board until October 31.
