The event attracted the participation of representatives of the government, social organizations of Macau, and a large number of Vietnamese people living and working here.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. Duong Trung Duc, Chairman of the Overseas Vietnamese Association in Macau, sent his best wishes to the Vietnamese community, especially Vietnamese women.

He said the Vietnamese in Macau are a diverse, united and strong community, which is highly appreciated by the host government.

On behalf of the Vietnamese Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macau, Consul Nguyen Tuan Anh said that Vietnamese people in Macau have always been a community of solidarity, attachment and mutual support.

On behalf of the Consul General, Mr. Nguyen Tuan Anh also awarded certificates of merit to Vietnamese individuals and groups living and working in Macau who have made many positive contributions to the association and the homeland.

During the ceremony, many art programs were performed by overseas Vietnamese. 

Since it was officially established in 2020, the Overseas Vietnamese Association now has more than 1,300 members.

Before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, there were more than 22,000 Vietnamese people working and living in the Macau Special Administrative Region. Currently, there are only about 7,000 Vietnamese people there. The number of Vietnamese people working in this region is expected to increase as Macau is restoring its activities after the pandemic./.
