He said the institute will present pens from former US President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden.

The American-Vietnamese man also said the institute will auction copies of the ancient map of Hoang Sa (Paracel), in the 1827-published maps of Phillipe Vandermaelen.

Thang said each copy sized 40cm by 60cm will cost a donation of VND1 million (US$44.2), equal to a scholarship.

IVCE, a New York non-profit organisation founded in 2000, aims to raise awareness about Vietnamese culture and expand the educational opportunities of Vietnamese students. It also promotes Vietnamese culture and education in the US and abroad.
