The Vietnamese community in Hungary numbers about 6,000, most of whom live in Budapest and adjacent areas, according to Ambassador Nguyen Thi Bich Thao. She said the community has organized many activities to preserve the national cultural characteristics and promote Vietnam’s image in Hungary.

PM Chinh mentioned the Politburo’s Resolution 36 on overseas Vietnamese affairs which emphasizes that overseas Vietnamese are an integral part of the community of ethnic groups of Vietnam.

The Government and National Assembly took many actions in implementing the resolution last year, including addressing issues related to ID cards, visa and property ownership of overseas Vietnamese, Mr. Chinh said. He pledged more will be done to ensure overseas Vietnamese as an essential part of the Vietnamese nation.

He commended the Vietnamese community in Hungary for their contributions to the host country while keeping the national cultural identity. He added that he has repeatedly asked the Hungarian government to continue facilitating the integration of the Vietnamese community, including the recognition of it as an ethnic minority group of Hungary.           

The Government leader said Vietnam is researching policies to attract overseas talents and called on Vietnamese scholars and researchers globally to join in scientific-technological research and innovation in Vietnam as well as in the building of an international financial center in Ho Chi Minh City.
