Every year, on the occasion of the Lunar New Year, the Spring on Homeland program is held by the State Committee on Overseas Vietnamese Affairs (the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) in coordination with relevant agencies for the Vietnamese community in foreign countries.
This is an opportunity for people who live far away from the country to meet, exchange, and celebrate Lunar New Year with those who live in Vietnam. At the same time, the program expresses the Party's and State's deep concern for overseas Vietnamese affairs.
However, this year, due to the complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic both at home and abroad and the fact that Vietnamese compatriots abroad cannot visit their homeland to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Meanwhile, the "Spring on Homeland 2021" program also cannot welcome direct audiences. The program, therefore, will be held in an appropriate form.
