Addressing the event, Ambassador Tran Van Khoa said the annual event aims to consolidate the solidarity among the Vietnamese community in Bangladesh, thus raising their understanding of their role and responsibility as an important bridge connecting the people of the two nations, particularly when the two countries mark their 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties.

Numerous local friends were invited to the event, thus giving them an insight of Vietnamese tradition, culture while strengthening the friendship between the two nations.

Bangladesh is home to 100 Vietnamese, mostly Vietnamese brides, students, and technicians working for Vietnamese projects in the country.

On February 4, crowds of Vietnamese expats in the Macau Special Administrative Region of China also gathered at a Tet celebration. The region is home to over 20,000 Vietnamese workers.
