This is one of the earliest associations of this kind established in the Vietnamese community in the Czech Republic with thousands of members doing business and living in most localities across the European country, according to the Vietnam News Agency.

Over the past 20 years, members of the association have always demonstrated a spirit of solidarity, proactively integrated into the local community, effectively promoted the tradition of mutual support, and remained dedicated to building and developing the homeland.

The Thanh Hoa Fellow-countrymen Association in the Czech Republic has consistently played an active role in charitable activities towards their homeland, especially contributions to developing Thanh Hoa province into a socio-economic centre in the north-central region.

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to the Czech Republic Duong Hoai Nam highly appreciated the association’s efforts to integrate into the local community, and their spirit of mutual support and active contributions towards their homeland.

He expressed his hope that the association will stay united, keep supporting each other in life and business, and actively contribute to the host community, thus building a positive image of Vietnamese people in the eyes of local people as well as other Europeans.

The Congress also elected a new executive committee, including 35 members. Mr. Nguyen Van Duc was re-elected as the Chairman of the association./.
