As part of his official visit to Australia, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung called at the Vietnamese Embassy where he met with representatives from the Vietnamese Community in the country on March 18.
While highlighting the recent development of Vietnam-Australia relations, PM Dung said he hopes the embassy and other Vietnamese representative agencies will enhance their efforts to promote bilateral cooperation in economics, trade, investment, security-defence, culture and education.
He also asked the embassy to popularize the Party and State’s policies among overseas Vietnamese living in Australia and ensure their legitimate rights.
The PM urged overseas Vietnamese nationals to abide by the host country’s laws and make practical contributions to the homeland’s development while strengthening bilateral relations.
The same day, PM Dung met with representatives from the Association of Vietnamese entrepreneurs in Australia, the Chairman of the Australia-Vietnam Friendship Association, and Australian students who will study in Vietnam in accordance with the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan.
