They said they want to contribute more to the development of Viet Nam and its relations with the US.


PM Phuc praised the expatriate community’s contributions to the host nation’s economy and to bilateral ties.


Stressing that to Viet Nam, they are an indispensable part and important human resources, he vowed to back their contributions to the home country.



The PM also had a meeting with Professor Ngo Thanh Nhan and his spouse, Merle Ratner, who have joined efforts to overcome war consequences in Viet Nam and assisted Vietnamese dioxin/Agent Orange victims’ fight for justice. -VNA
