(VOVworld)- As many as 200 overseas Vietnamese people (OVs) returning home to enjoy the Tet holiday gathered in central Da Nang city on Friday to celebrate the Lunar New Year. The meeting was a conjunction between the Vietnam Fatherland Front’s Standing Board, the Overseas Vietnamese Liaison Association and the Da Nang Department of External Affairs. Speaking at the event, Van Huu Chien, Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee, introduced Da Nang’s achievements attained in 2013, pledging that the city will create more favourable conditions for the OVs to keep in touch with the homeland. The same day, the northern province of Thai Nguyen held a get-together for Vietnamese people living abroad shortly before the Tet festival. While discussing Thai Nguyen’s incentives to lure more investment and the operation of foreign direct investment (FDI) projects in the locality, the participants shared experience in lecturing at several universities and colleges in the province.
