The event was also attended by representatives of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee, the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs, and the embassies of Vietnam in 15 European countries.
In his opening remarks, Chairman of the union Hoang Dinh Thang said the congress was an occasion for the union to review its performance and set out tasks for the next term and elect enthusiastic, capable, reputable, and responsible candidates to the union’s executive committee and inspection board for the second tenure.
Mr. Thang said: "We want to share experience to help overseas Vietnamese in Europe further integrate into the local community while maintaining national cultural identity and close bond with the homeland. We have promoted cultural and sports exchanges and humanitarian activities and worked closely with each other and the local administrations in the resident country."
