(VOVworld)- President Truong Tan Sang held a warm meeting in Hanoi on Wednesday with a delegation of overseas Vietnamese women who are attending a conference for Vietnamese women living abroad.  The conference, the first of its kind, coorganised by the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs and Vietnam Women’s Union, has the theme “promoting overseas Vietnamese women’s roles and potential in developing their communities abroad and their home country”.

Delegates at the meeting briefed the State leader on the situation of Vietnamese women living in foreign countries.  They said the conference created a good chance for over 200 delegates from 28 nations and territories to share experience in working abroad and integrating into the host community.  The OV women expressed their hopes that the Party and State issue more specific policies for the Vietnamese living abroad. They also wished for more support to overseas Vietnamese communities in the teaching Vietnamese language for young generations.  In his address, President Sang affirmed that the overseas Vietnamese community is an inseparable part of the Vietnamese nation, and OV women play an important role in preserving the mother language, traditions and cultures. The State leader said the conference should be held regularly to help connect the OVs and the homeland.
