AIPA 41 to be held in Quang Ninh in 2020

The ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA) Executive Committee approved the nomination of Vietnamese NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan as its Vice President at the 40th AIPA General Assembly in Bangkok, Thailand on Sunday.

As is the organisation's normal practice, the AIPA President for next year serves as Vice President of the AIPA Executive Committee.

Chairwoman Ngan announced that the next AIPA General Assembly will take place in Ha Long city, Quang Ninh province, next August.

At a meeting with the staff of the Vietnamese Embassy in Bangkok and representatives of the Vietnamese community in Thailand the same day, Ms. Ngan said the Party, State, and National Assembly always give full support to Vietnam's representative offices in foreign countries.

I hope the embassy staff and members of the Vietnamese community will continue to be role models so that the host government and people will speak highly of Vietnam. Although you hold Thai citizenship, you should keep the Vietnamese personality, spirit, and culture, she said.

There are more than 100,000 overseas Vietnamese and 25 Vietnamese associations in Thailand.
