Meeting for Vietnamese students and alumni held in Italy

A meeting to strengthen management activities and youth movements was jointly held by the Vietnamese Embassy and the Vietnamese Students and Alumni Association in Italy on October 29-30.

Participants reviewed the association’s advantages, difficulties and remarkable achievements during the 2009-2011 period and worked out plans for its coming term.

Vietnamese Ambassador Dang Khanh Thoai briefed them on the political and economic development of Vietnam over the past years and the Party and State policy on foreign affairs and community work including the association in Italy.

He stressed that the association has successfully mobilized Vietnamese students and alumni for its activities, notably sports and cultural exchanges despite facing huge challenges.

However, it should diversify activities to attract more members and boost cooperation with the Embassy to receive more support, he added.
