A website designed to connect the overseas Vietnamese (Viet Kieu) community in all parts of the world was opened on Wednesday (December 8).
Jointly launched by the Vietnam News Agency, the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Agency for Foreign Information Service under the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC), the website www.vietkieu.info provides valuable information on the State's guidelines and polices on overseas Vietnamese.
It also gives information about the activities of overseas Vietnamese regarding their homeland, showcasing outstanding achievements in particular.
The website is divided into national pages so that its readers can quickly learn about the lives of the overseas Vietnamese community in each country.
The Community News column will be supplemented with information from reporters, agencies for foreign affairs, overseas Vietnamese trade missions as well as overseas Vietnamese themselves.
Readers can find an overview of each nation and its relations with Vietnam.
The website also provides systematized State documents and policies divided into such categories as nationality, investment-business and verification of Vietnamese origin.
A list of overseas Vietnamese diplomatic agencies, associations, companies, trade centers and restaurants will be provided and regularly updated to facilitate business transactions and personal relations.
