Paris (VNA) – National Assembly Vice Chairman Phung
Quoc Hien met Vietnamese nationals in Paris on July 8 to acquire their ideas
for national development.

Speaking at the event, Secretary General of the General
Union of Vietnamese People in France (UGVF) Ngo Kim Hung said his organisation was
formed by the late President Ho Chi Minh in 1919 with a view to helping
Vietnamese nationals integrate into the host country and connecting them with
the home nation via events during the traditional New Year and holidays.

He added that the UGVF is preparing to celebrate its 100thanniversary with a number of practical activities.

Bui Nguyen Hoang from the Association of Vietnamese Scientists
and Experts (AVSE) in France said born in 2011, AVSE gathers Vietnamese
intellects and experts not only in France but also across Europe and North

Via scientific seminars on development policies,
finance-banking, and digital economy, the AVSE wants to provide a platform for
policymakers at home country and Vietnamese intellects abroad to discuss
practical ideas for national development, he added.

NA Vice Chairman Hien, for his part, said the Vietnamese
Party, NA and government always consider the Vietnamese community abroad,
including those in France, an inseparable part of the nation and a bridge
strengthening Vietnam-France ties.

According to him, more than 300,000 Vietnamese living in
France, including nearly 6,500 students, are important resources that need to
be utilised.

He also updated them about Vietnam’s renovation achievements
over the past three decades, the socio-economic development for 2016 and the
first half of 2017.

In the afternoon the same day, NA Vice Chairman Hien and his
entourage laid a floral tribute to the late President Ho Chi Minh at his statue
in Montreuil park, the suburban city of Montreuil. They are due to wrap up
four-day visit on July 10.-VNA
