In addition, international and Vietnamese students in many countries returned to their homelands in large numbers or have switched to studying and researching online. Most of the major activities, especially youth and students' connections expected in 2020, could not be held or must also use virtual forms to suit the current situation. However, the Youth Union and Associations have overcome the aforementioned difficulties. Activities to support young people's startups have still been deployed regularly. Notably, Vietnam Student Association in Singapore successfully held an online seminar named "Dream to study in Singapore", Vietnamese Student Association in the Netherlands hosted "Vietnamese Youth's Initiative Across Europe" contest

The propaganda of Vietnam's image to international friends had remarkable achievement, especially on social networks. Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and Vietnam Student Association in Singapore held Vietnamese courses for international students.
