QUẢNG BÌNH — The People’s Committee of central Quảng Bình province met on Monday with the young overseas Vietnamese (OVs) taking part in the Vietnam Summer Camp 2022.
After a two-year hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vietnam Summer Camp has returned with 107 young OVs from 25 countries and territories who have excelled in academic performance, sports and arts, and contributed much to the building of OV communities.
The 16-day programme will take them to nine cities and provinces across Việt Nam where they will visit popular historical relics and natural attractions.
Addressing the gathering in Đồng Hới City, Vice Chairman of the Quảng Bình People’s Committee Hồ An Phong briefed them on the local cultural, as well as historical and natural richness, adding that with flexible and appropriate mechanisms and policies, the province has been attracting domestic and foreign investment in various spheres.
He expressed his hope that the young OVs will act as ambassadors helping popularise images of Việt Nam, including Quảng Bình, to international friends.
In Quảng Bình, the young OV delegation visited the temple dedicated to President Hồ Chí Minh, heroes and martyrs; paid tribute to General Võ Nguyên Giáp at his resting place; visited the Phong Nha - Kẻ Bàng National Park; and presented gifts to people with disadvantages at the province’s social work centre.
The Vietnam Summer Camp 2022 began in Vinh City, central Nghệ An Province on July 22. It is an annual event for outstanding OV youths around the world organised by the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. — VNS
