Overseas Vietnamese ends their transVietnam tour

The 150 overseas Vietnamese young people and students on August 1 arrived at the Tan Trao historic site in the northern mountainous province of Truyen Quang after having travelled through 12 provinces in the country. In Tuyen Quang, they joined local young people for the closing ceremony of the 2010 Vietnam Summer Camp entitled ‘the Country of the Ascending Dragon’. Addressing the event, Nguyen Thanh Son, Deputy Foreign Minister who also heads the Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs, confirmed that the 2010 Vietnam Summer Cam was of great significance. During their 20-day tour of Vietnam, the young expatriates had a chance to witness their homeland’s achievements as well as the enormous sacrifices made by their elders to win independence and freedom for the nation. The tour has inspired patriotism, a national pride and a love for the Vietnamese language among the young expatriates, said the diplomat. Le Huong Thao, from Bulgaria, spoke for all the 150 young overseas Vietnamese and shared her feelings about returning to roots. She said she felt very lucky to have had the chance to attend the Camp and meet her peers from other nations. Also at the ceremony, the young overseas Vietnamese performed along with young people from Tuyen Quang in a special dancing and singing show rich in Vietnamese cultural identity. On the occasion, the participants in the camp presented VND20 million to a charity in Tuyen Quang province; young Vietnamese from Bulgaria alone donated US$1,000 to the provincial fund ‘Hearts for you’ which helps children suffering from heart disease. During their stay here, the young overseas Vietnamese visited the Tan Trao museum, which houses many items related to late President Ho Chi Minh and other former leaders.
