The Khuong Viet Pagoda in Orsay and Truc Lam Zen Monastery in Villebon-sur-Yvette are among popular destinations for the community, as these places offer them a spring atmosphere like the homeland and prayers for a blessed New Year ahead.

Meanwhile, in Venezuela, the Vietnamese Embassy organised a warm Tet get-together for overseas Vietnamese in the South American country. The event was filled with Vietnamese folk songs and traditional Tet food, such as banh chung (square glutinous rice cake) and fried spring rolls.

Speaking at the function, Vietnamese Ambassador to Venezuela Dao Thanh Chung stressed Vietnam’s socio-economic progress in 2017 and highlights of Vietnam – Venezuela comprehensive partnership, particularly in agriculture.

Outcomes of bilateral agriculture projects have so far helped Venezuela ease food shortage and move toward ensuring food security in the future, he noted.
