Vietnamese language and culture contribute to a multicultural Korean society

Mai Phan Dung, Deputy Chairman of the COVA said that over the past 30 years, Vietnam-RoK relations have been promoted strongly by both nations.

“Nowadays, more than 200,000 Vietnamese people are living, studying, and working in the RoK, and tens of thousands of Vietnamese-Korean multicultural families have bonded the two countries together. Along with the wave of Korean investment and trade, the Korean community in Vietnam is as populous as the Vietnamese one in Korea. In that close relationship, we highly appreciate the community organizations of the two countries that have actively supported in stabilizing the lives and the development of Vietnam and RoK and contributed to strengthening the relationship between the two countries," shared Mai Phan Dung.

According to Mai Phan Dung, language and culture play a significant role in connecting the overseas Vietnamese community with their homeland. Vietnamese language and culture also actively contribute to building a multicultural Korean society, becoming a bridge connecting the people of the two countries. With that meaning, "Vietnam-Korea Cultural Exchange" is expected to be an event responding to the "Day for Honouring Vietnamese Language in Vietnamese Communities Abroad" launched by the Government.

In the "Vietnam-Korea Cultural Exchange" event, the COVA also called for the response of overseas Vietnamese in Korea and the world for the project “Day of Honoring Vietnamese language in the overseas Vietnamese community from 2023 to 2030" launched by the Government.

Besides, she has actively contributed to the relationship between the people of the two countries.
