Discussing the association’s upcoming plan, the provisional president of the Vietnamese Students’ Association in Europe Dieu Linh affirmed and underlined the association’s care for the Vietnamese youth in Europe. Dieu Linh added that the association hoped to connect and form a network to help Vietnamese youth in integration into European society and job seeking, contributing to nurturing Vietnamese intellectuals in Europe. This was one of the main missions that the congress participants agreed on.
Overseas Vietnamese youth is playing an increasingly important role in the growth and protection of Vietnam.

In addition, it is important to improve and diversify activities to mobilize overseas Vietnamese, especially Vietnamese youth abroad, to contribute actively to the development of localities and enhancing the relations between Vietnam and other countries.”
