Affirming that the city’s leaders always have special affection and respect for the overseas Vietnamese community, Vice Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Van Hieu thanked them for their contributions, especially during the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Remittances sent by Vietnamese people abroad have supplemented resources for the city to effectively implement socio-economic development activities and ensure social welfare, said Hieu.
