Vietnamese people worldwide celebrate Tet
Diplomatic missions and Vietnamese people working and living in Cairo organized a Tet celebration on Friday.
In his address, Vietnamese Ambassador to Egypt Tran Thanh Cong said: This is the first time I have celebrated the traditional lunar New Year in Egypt. I'm very happy. People come to the event very early. They are very excited to enjoy Chung cakes and other traditional Vietnamese cakes. I believe that Egyptian friends can also feel the Vietnamese Tet atmosphere when participating in this celebration while overseas Vietnamese will love the homeland more.
Ngo Thi Quynh Chi, a Vietnamese student in Egypt, said: Attending the festival eases my homesickness. I will try to improve my language skills and knowledge to better to do my job at home.
Vietnamese Ambassador to Algeria Pham Quoc Tru visited and presented gifts to Vietnamese workers in Tipaza province, 80 km from Algiers capital city. The delegation held a working session with representatives and 120 Vietnamese workers of Nibelc Germany Group in Algeria.
