Vietnamese Ambassador to Algeria Pham Quoc Tru briefed the participants on Vietnam’s outstanding achievements in all fields in 2017. He highlighted progress in Vietnam-Algeria relations and the embassy’s activities last year, especially the activities related to the Vietnamese community in Algeria.

The diplomat affirmed that the State has always considered overseas Vietnamese as an inseparable part of the Vietnamese nation and highly evaluated their contributions to the home country.

The Vietnamese government has created favourable conditions for overseas Vietnamese to return and do business in Vietnam, he added.

On this occasion, a liaison board for overseas Vietnamese in Algeria was set up, which is expected to serve as a bridge to connect the Vietnamese community in Algeria and strengthen their solidarity.
