The US Ambassador to Vietnam, David Shear, and the Vice-Chief of the Ho Chi Minh City External Affairs Department, Nguyen Tuan, on September 28 th cut the ribbon to open an American Centre run by the US Consulate-General in Ho Chi Minh (HCM) City.
The Centre is located in the 8 th floor of Diamond Plaza Building in the city centre and serves all people for free.
Addressing the opening ceremony, the US Ambassador said that the Centre is a place for individuals to meet and exchange with each other. Local researchers can go there to learn more about US history, economy and culture. Students can have information about the US education and training systems and opportunities for their further study in the US.
Especially, the Centre will serve as a bridge between the two countries and peoples and in part contributes to the City’s already-plentiful cultural life, the US Ambassador said.
