120 youth delegates and overseas Vietnamese students from 26 countries and territories will attend the 18th Vietnam Summer Camp.

Deputy Foreign Minister Le Thi Thu Hang, who is Chairwoman of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs, said: “The Summer Camp has connected many generations of overseas Vietnamese from around the world with their peers in the country. They create a firm foundation for great international unity.”

In a space of 2 weeks, overseas Vietnamese youth will participate in an array of activities in many provinces and cities, visit scenic spots, and learn about the lives of local people. They will join with local young people in volunteer activities to help disadvantaged and less fortunate people.
