HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc wants the Association for Liaison with Overseas Vietnamese (OV) to offer overseas Vietnamese more support so they can better contribute to national development at home.
During a reception in Hà Nội on Wednesday for a delegation from the association, led by Ambassador Nguyễn Phú Bình, the PM spoke highly of the efforts of the more than 4 million Vietnamese people living and working abroad who are making important socio-economic contributions to the homeland.
He said the Party and State leaders have always paid special attention to the OV community and want more of them to return to their home country to welcome the Lunar New Year festivities.
The host suggested the association do more work to inspire national pride and patriotism in young OV intellectuals.
Ambassador Bình called on the State to issue policies to attract more Vietnamese intellectuals abroad, especially businesspeople and scientists.
As the startup trend is growing in Việt Nam, he wished the Government would issue new policies to lure young talents to the country. — VNS
