The gathering created an excellent opportunity for graduates from RoK universities to meet and catch up on what has been happening in their lives with friend and acquaintances.
Speaking at the event, Pham Tien Van, former ambassador to the RoK and vice president of the Association, said the number of Vietnamese students studying in the RoK increased from just 367 in 2003 to 4,451 in 2015.
“Many of these students have gone on after graduation to make a significant contribution to the country’s economic integration and serve as a bridge promoting cultural exchange and friendship between the two countries,” said Mr Van.
