Community spirit strong in Phnom Penh


VietNamNet Bridge – The Association of Vietnamese People in Phnom Penh in the past year expanded its branches to 55 out of 75 wards in the capital city of Cambodia, reported the association at a conference on March 27.

In the past year, the association says it coordinated with local authorities to solve issues for overseas Vietnamese. It also launched drives to raise funds to help overseas Vietnamese overcome the aftermath of natural disasters and to upgrade schools for overseas Vietnamese children.

The association says it plans this year to further coordinate with local authorities and prepare for a congress to select a new executive board.

Vietnamese Ambassador Nguyen Chien Thang presented certificates of merit granted by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Gia Khiem and the President of the Committee for Overseas Vietnamese to individuals who have contributed to the association’s development.
