In his speech before more than 100 overseas Vietnamese businesspersons and representatives of Ho Chi Minh city companies, Standing Vice Chairman of the city People’s Committee Le Thanh Liem reviewed economic achievements of the city, while stressing the valuable contributions of overseas Vietnamese around the world.
