Vietnamese Ambassador to the UK Nguyen Hoang Long called on the Vietnamese student community to actively participate in popularizing the country and people of Vietnam to British friends and contributing to strengthening solidarity, friendship and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.
Matt Dean, Director of International Relations at Aston University, said the event is a great opportunity to introduce Vietnamese culture to British friends, especially when the Vietnamese community in the UK in general, and in Birmingham in particular, is growing.
