Vietnamese Ambassador Nguyen Hoanh Nam emphasized the Party and State’s commitment to valuing and continuously strengthening the great national unity bloc, of which the overseas Vietnamese community is a vital part.

A similar event was also hosted by the Vietnamese Embassy in Brazil. Ambassador Bui Van Nghi extended his best wishes to the guests and Vietnamese people residing in Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Suriname, and Guyana.

A representative of the Vietnamese community in Brazil expressed gratitude to the embassy for their continuous support in stabilizing their lives. They affirmed their commitment to contributing to their homeland and maintaining strong relations between the two countries.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Venezuela organized a community Tet event, featuring Venezuelan singer and songwriter Alí Alejandro Primera, who performed several songs praising late President Ho Chi Minh, the founder of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), in commemoration of the CPV’s 94th founding anniversary (February 3, 1930-2024).
