NDO - The overseas Vietnamese communities from different countries and territories around the country have made great contributions to the country’s achievements in the fields of society, economy, culture, defence and security.
The statement was made by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc while hosting a warm reception for nearly 100 Vietnamese expatriates, who have returned to the country to attend the annual ‘Xuan Que Huong’ (Homeland Spring) programme 2018.
At the reception, PM Phuc appreciated the significance of the annual ‘Homeland Spring’ programme and extended his New Year wishes to the overseas Vietnamese around the world.
He noted that, over the past few years, Vietnamese expatriates have upheld their responsibilities and patriotism to conduct specific activities for the country’s socio-economic development, such as enhancing their investment, production and business and sharing experience in the management and consumption of Vietnamese products.
The Government leader expressed his hope that the overseas Vietnamese would continue contributing to the cause of national construction and development.
The overseas Vietnamese should also preserve and promote their national identities in their host countries, as well as act as a bridge to boost the friendship and co-operation between Vietnam and other countries, he added.
The PM emphasised that the State and Government will constantly improve the institutions, policies and laws to create more favourable condition for Vietnamese expats to return to the country and develop their production and business activities.
