Deputy FM suggests establishing association of Vietnamese intellectuals in UK

Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Quoc Cuong met with overseas Vietnamese students, intellectuals and businesspeople in the UK on Sunday and Monday as part of a working trip.

Mr. Cuong, who is also Head of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs, expressed his pleasure at the increasing number of Vietnamese experts, intellectuals and entrepreneurs in the UK in recent years. He asked the Association of Overseas Vietnamese in the UK to increase activities to promote solidarity, culture, and the Vietnamese language, especially among younger generations, in the Vietnamese community. He suggested establishing an association of Vietnamese intellectuals in the UK to strengthen their connection.

At a meeting with the Deputy Foreign Minister, Vietnamese intellectuals living in the UK asked that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs support the organization of the first Forum of Young Academicians of the World in late July to foster connectivity between young scientists from Vietnam and other countries.

During his visit, Mr. Cuong had a working session with the Vietnamese Embassy in the UK.
