Overseas Vietnamese affairs: great national unity to promote the country's development resources

“It can be affirmed that overseas Vietnamese compatriots have become increasingly important resources, both in terms of economic resources, intellectual resources and "soft" resources, contributing to the development of the country. ", Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Pham Quang Hieu, Chairman of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese affairs.

The overseas Vietnamese community continues to integrate deeply into the host society in all fields and is an important resource contributing to the country's development - both in terms of economic resources and intellectual resources and “soft” resources, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Economically, according to the World Bank, since 2010, Vietnam has always been one of the countries receiving the most remittances. In 2021, despite the serious impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the amount of remittances sent to Vietnam still increased by about 10% compared to 2020. The total amount of remittances remitted to Vietnam in recent years is approaching the amount of 200 billion USD.


Overseas Vietnamese participated in the Spring of Friendship Festival 2021 in Dong Nai and offered incense at the Tran Bien Temple of Literature.

In terms of trade, hundreds of thousands of overseas Vietnamese businessmen have actively supported, invested, promoted import and export, contributing to the implementation of the campaign "Vietnamese people give priority to using Vietnamese goods" in the community.

In the fields of science and technology, innovation and high - quality human resources, the achievements of the overseas Vietnamese community are increasingly remarkable. It is estimated that there are between 500,000 and 600 thousand highly qualified businessmen and intellectuals, accounting for 10 - 12% of the overseas Vietnamese community, which is concentrated in developed countries such as the US (with about 50%), France, Australia, Canada, Russia and Eastern Europe…

Overseas Vietnamese intellectuals have gathered and participated in "donation plans" for many important domestic issues, such as technology, artificial intelligence, entrepreneurship and innovation, pandemic prevention and control, economic development model…. The "soft" resources of the overseas Vietnamese community have been contributing to improving the country's image and position, enhancing the relations between Vietnam and countries around the world as the role, position and influence of the overseas Vietnamese community in the host country are increasingly enhanced and expanded, deeply participating in all aspects of life in the host country such as politics, economy, science and technology, culture and art….

In particular, the overseas Vietnamese community always has a strong attachment to the homeland. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, despite many difficulties, they enthusiastically responded to the call of the Party, State and Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee. In the two years 2020 - 2021, people have donated about 115 billion VND to support the country and many medical equipment for the pandemic prevention and control and the COVID-19 vaccine fund. In addition, overseas medical experts and doctors have actively donated plans, shared experiences or volunteered to return home to participate in the fight against the pandemic.

On December 31 of 2021, the Government issued Resolution No. 169/NQ-CP promulgating the Government's action plan on overseas Vietnamese affairs for the period 2021 - 2026, which sets out the tasks and solutions to concretize Conclusion No. 12-KL/TW of the Politburo. The overseas Vietnamese affairs will continue to be implemented more strongly and comprehensively as required by the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress and Conclusion 12-KL/TW, in order to better express the sentiments and responsibilities of the Party and State in taking care of the overseas Vietnamese community, and at the same time encouraging and creating conditions for overseas Vietnamese to turn their heart to homeland.
