The event attracts the participation of nearly 400 women representing Vietnamese women's associations in nearly 20 European countries

At the congress, participants sketched out the federation's operation orientations for the next five years and sought measures to support the establishment of organizations for Vietnamese women in countries where such organizations have not been set up, and assist member organizations to build their own operational plans.

At the congress, an executive board of the federation was elected with 43 members. Nguyen Viet Trieu, President of the Vietnamese Women Association in Poland, was elected as the President of the VWF in Europe.

The federation will become a member of the Union of Vietnamese People Associations in Europe.

The VWF provides a large-scale forum for Vietnamese women in Europe, and creates a momentum and provides orientation for activities of Vietnamese women in Europe, enabling them to contribute more to community work and development of overseas Vietnamese communities abroad.

On this occasion, the VWF in Europe announced the formation of a fund for poor women and orphans, and launched fundraising activities for the fund./.
