The 65th anniversary of the August Revolution (August 19) and National Day (September 2) was celebrated in Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh, and Bangkok, Thailand.
Vietnam’s achievements have been a source of encouragement for overseas Vietnamese to contribute to the nation, especially for the millennial anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi, said Tran Van Toi, president of the General Association of Overseas Vietnamese in Cambodia.
The association also launched a patriotic emulation campaign among Vietnamese in Cambodia.
Ngo Duc Thang, Vietnamese Ambassador to Thailand, affirmed that the celebration of Vietnam’s major holidays will help overseas Vietnamese remember their homeland.
In 2010, Vietnam has held many important events that prove it is a peaceful and developing nation, Thang said. He believes in the bright future for the close cooperation between the two countries.
