Speaking at the event held on January 30 evening, Consul General Nguyen Thanh Van emphasized that the Party and State always consider the Vietnamese community abroad as an inseparable part of the nation.

He emphasized that Khmer-Vietnamese Association’s chapters in seven northwestern provinces of Cambodia have organized many activities to promote solidarity among the Vietnamese community. Vietnamese businesses investing and doing business in the region have always accompanied the Consulate General in community support activities, he said.

The diplomat expressed his hope that Vietnamese-origin people in Cambodia will strictly abide by the host country’s law, integrate more deeply into the host society, and actively promote and preserve the tradition of solidarity and cultural identity of the homeland, thus making practical contributions to the Vietnam - Cambodia cooperative relations.

Viettel Cambodia (Metfone), a subsidiary of the Military Industry and Telecoms Group (Viettel) coordinated with the Vietnamese Embassy in Phom Penh and the Khmer-Vietnamese Association in Cambodia to launch a Tet celebration program for the community of Cambodians of Vietnamese origin there, during which 1,075 Tet gifts worth 22,655 USD were offered to the needy from the community across Cambodia.

Saigon Thuong Tin Bank in Cambodia will present 500 Tet gift worth about 10,000 USD to families of Vietnamese origin and Cambodian people in Battambang province on February 2./.
