Standing Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh on August 3 approved the project “Honoring the Vietnamese language in the overseas community in the period of 2023-2030.”
September 8 was chosen as it coincides with the anniversary of the date the provisional government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam launched a campaign to eradicate illiteracy in 1945. It also honors President Ho Chi Minh’s call on September 8, 1962, to preserve, respect, and popularize the mother tongue.
The project encourages and honors individuals and organizations that have made active contributions to preserving and spreading the language in the overseas Vietnamese community, maintaining the use of Vietnamese in Vietnamese families abroad in daily activities, and introducing the language to the local people of the host countries.
