Overseas Vietnamese around the world celebrate Tet

Vietnamese people around the world are celebrating Tet, the traditional Lunar New Year festival.

400 expatriates enjoyed a cozy Tet celebration on Sunday in London. Vietnamese Ambassador to the UK Nguyen Van Thao assured overseas Vietnamese that they are an indispensable part of Vietnam and urged them to contribute more to Vietnam's development and closer Vietnam-UK relations.

On Sunday, at a get-together in Fukuoka, Japan, 300 Vietnamese people and international friends were treated to art performances, traditional dishes, green square sticky rice cakes, and Tet gifts for children.

Similar Tet celebrations have been held for Vietnamese people living in Brazil, the Netherlands, Laos, Spain, Belgium and Mexico.
