City welcomes Viet Kieu for Tet


Bridge – The HCM City People’s Committee has assigned the HCM City Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs to design programs to welcome Viet Kieu returning to Vietnam for Tet in late January and early February 2008.

Welcoming receptions will be organized at the Tan Son Nhat Airport from January 8 to February 16. The airport’s terminal has the motif of a traditional Tet festival. Volunteers will be posted at the airport to help the overseas Vietnamese when they arrive.

On February 18-19, the HCM City Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs and Vietnamese Embassies in Cambodia, the Vietnamese Association in Cambodia and HCM City’s Youth Union will pay visits and present gifts to disadvantaged Vietnamese in Cambodia for the occasion of the lunar new year.

A meeting with overseas Vietnamese will be held on January 29 at 111 Ba Huyen Thanh Quan, District 3; participants will include HCM City’s senior officials and around 600 Viet Kieu.

The Overseas Vietnamese Liaison Association and the Overseas Vietnamese Business Association will organize a meeting with overseas Vietnamese to welcome the Tet festival on January 24 at the Phu Tho Sports Club.
