Speaking at the opening of the 2022 Summer Camp, Trinh Hoang Long, the SiviDuc President, said that this summer camp was held to mark the 10th anniversary of the establishment of The Association of Vietnamese Students in Germany. It has been considered an inclusive forum and one of the legal representative for Vietnamese students studying and working in Germany. SiviDuc is also a founding member of the Union of Vietnamese Youth and Students in Europe and a member of the Central Committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, SiviDuc has suffered from drawbacks in engaging activities and face-to-face exchanges. Therefore, the plan of the 2022 Summer Camp is developed properly with practical and useful activities for participants. The SiviDuc President also promised that in the near future, the Association's leaders will try its best to attract more forces to expand the network of branches in Germany.

According to Ambassador Vu Quang Minh, in meetings with German leaders, they all appreciated the learning ability as well as the learning outcomes of Vietnamese students and expressed their desire to promote cooperation with Vietnam to send young people to vocational training as well as to attract skilled labor force to work in Germany in the context of Germany's lack of human resources.
