Addressing the event, Le Thanh Hung, a representative from the Vietnamese Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macau (China), stressed that the Vietnamese Party and Government attach great care to Vietnamese expatriates worldwide, including those in Macau.
He highly appreciated the Association for Mutual Support of Vietnamese Fellow-Countrymen in Macau for their active operations over the past year, particularly their launch of charity activities to support needy families in the community as well as disadvantaged people in the homeland.
