The congress aimed to review activities during the 2021-2024 term and set out orientations for the next three years.

The event was attended by over 30 delegates representing over 500 Vietnamese students studying at 12 universities in 10 cities and provinces in Belgium.

Speaking at the congress, Vietnamese Ambassador to Belgium Nguyen Van Thao pointed out important tasks for SIVIBI to further develop the community of Vietnamese students in Belgium and contribute to Vietnam’s development.

He urged overseas Vietnamese students to focus on studying, and develop comprehensively.

During the last term, SIVIBI paid much attention to expanding the association, attracting more members, and taking part in activities held by the Vietnamese association in Belgium. Particularly, the association implemented a program that offered support to Vietnamese newcomers who arrived in Belgium to start their study.

It also actively joined events to promote Vietnamese culture in the host country.

SIVIBI was also requested to closely connect with domestic associations and the Vietnamese community in Belgium to build a strong network that will support its members better.

The congress elected an executive board including 19 members. Mr. Nguyen Tuan Nghia, Master of Business Administration from Louvain University, was elected as President of the Association./.
