Foyer Vietnam - Home of Friends of Vietnam in France
On October 28, a ceremony was held to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the establishment of Foyer Vietnam Association in France. Vietnamese Ambassador to France Dinh Toan Thang attended and spoke at the ceremony.
Over the past ten years, "Vietnam House" has become a meaningful gathering place for meeting, sharing, supporting, and connecting. This place is now a regular place for generations of Vietnamese and French friends who love and want to learn about Vietnam through many diverse activities to maintain and promote the image of the country, culture, and people.
Foyer Vietnam also has a website to help Vietnamese students find internships, part-time jobs, or accommodation. This is also a useful information channel for associations and businesses during their operations in France and Vietnam.
“Foyer Vietnam's activities have contributed to strengthening the Vietnam - France friendship”, said Ambassador Dinh Toan Thang at the ceremony.
