The Malaysian Ambassador wishes to coordinate with VUFO to promote people-to-people connection between the two countries, especially in the field of culture and tourism. He asked VUFO to support the delegation of Melaka to visit some places in Vietnam to enhance people-to-people exchanges and promote tourism.
