Vietnamese youth camp wraps up in Germany

Berlin, August 17 (VNA) – The first camp for Vietnamese youth and students in Europe (SiviTa Europa) was held in Berlin, Germany from August 14-16, attracting thousands of youth from Vietnamese Student Associations across a number of European countries.

Numerous activities took place during the three-day event at the Berlin University of Technology (TU Berlin), including a career guidance seminar where Vietnamese students in Germany and other EU countries shared their experience in finding a suitable job.

On the occasion, the Vietnamese Students Association in Germany organised its second congress for the 2015-2018 tenure.

Attending the event, a representative from the Vietnamese Embassy in Germany expressed hope that the association would continuously expand its network in order to contribute to developing a strong Vietnamese youth, student and intellectual community in Europe.

Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Students Association Central Committee Lam Dinh Thang lauded the effective operations of the association in Germany over the past time and urged it to carry out more activities to help overseas Vietnamese students get better understanding of the country’s socio-economy, culture and manpower policies.

A competition to discover talented Vietnamese students in Germany and EU countries (Gala SiviTa) also took place at the TU Berlin University.

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Germany Nguyen Thi Hoang Anh highlighted the significance of the camp as it was organised on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Germany.

She said she wishes that young Vietnamese intellectuals will contribute more to building a strong, integrated and prosperous Vietnamese community in the EU.
