Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to the UK and Ireland Nguyen Hoang Long emphasized that the establishment of the committee is an important milestone marking the operation of the Vietnamese Students Association in Ireland.

According to the Ambassador, the association will further bolster education collaboration in the context that the bilateral ties have been lifted to a new height with the opening of Vietnam's Honorary Consulate Office in Dublin in July 2023.

Education cooperation between the two countries is flourishing, as it tops four priority areas in Ireland's official development assistance (ODA) strategy for Vietnam.

The Interim Executive Committee has 10 members, including President Tran Nhat Minh and three Vice Presidents Hoang Thi Thuy, Nguyen Thanh Luong and Nguyen Thanh Son. To support activities of the Executive Committee, the association invited members of the Executive Committee of the Vietnam Ireland Students & Alumni Network (VISA) to serve as the Advisory Board.

The Interim Executive Committee is expected to soon hold a congress to elect the official Executive Committee, support the association's activities and build the Vietnamese Student Association in Ireland into a united, strong and developed organization./.
