Tet get-together held for Vietnamese expats in Saudi Arabia

The Embassy of Vietnam in Saudi Arabia on January 18 held a get-together for overseas Vietnamese and guest workers in the Middle East country to celebrate the traditional Lunar New Year (Tet).

Vietnamese Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Vu Viet Dung took the occasion to update the participants on Vietnam’s outstanding achievements in 2018.

The ambassador also encouraged Vietnamese people currently living and working in Saudi Arabia to enhance solidarity, assist each other and comply with the host country’s laws.

Dung asked companies which are responsible of sending guest workers to Saudi Arabia to promptly report difficulties facing Vietnamese workers to the embassy, adding that it will spare no efforts to ensure citizen protection in accordance with Vietnam’s regulations.

The get-together brought warm moments to about 500 participants with traditional Tet dishes and songs about the motherland.
