Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. Nguyen Duy Nhien, President of the Overseas Vietnamese Association in the Czech Republic, said that the community places importance on the preservation and maintenance of the Vietnamese culture and language serving its sustainable development.

According to him, community leaders have shown their commitment through various activities, such as organizing summer camps, promoting cultural programs, and language competitions to help young overseas Vietnamese get access to the Vietnamese language./.
