According to a decision signed by the Malaysian Ministry of Home Affairs on March 8, 2022, the MVFA is an organization representing the Vietnamese community in Malaysia, and acts as a bridge connecting overseas Vietnamese in Malaysia and the Vietnamese Embassy in the country.

The establishment of the friendship association aims to bolster the cooperation between the two countries across fields, including politics, culture and society, and people-to-people exchange.

On behalf of the Vietnamese Government, Vietnamese Ambassador to Malaysia Tran Viet Thai sent the congratulatory letters from the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia to the association.

He expressed his hope that the association will help further strengthen and deepen the relationship between Vietnam and Malaysia./.
