In response, Mrs. Anjuska expressed her desire to continue cooperating with VUFO in delegation exchange between Switzerland and Vietnam.

In particular, they will travel to many cities and provinces across the country to gain better understanding about Vietnam,
Ms. Anjuska hopes that, after the visit, the young members will learn about the beauty of the country and people so that they can actively participate in the projects of the Association in Vietnam.
Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga agreed with the idea, saying that VUFO will support the Association to plan and also to help the members during the visit. The two sides agreed to continue exchanging information and consider this one of the important tasks to enhance mutual understanding and cultivate the friendship of the young generation of Switzerland and Vietnam.
