With more than 8,000 Vietnamese students in the UK, Ninh underscored the need for students to achieve good academic results and said he considers them a highly potent force for making positive contributions to the high quality human resources ofthe nation.

Son Thanh, President of the Vietnamese Association in the UK voiced his desire that the Vietnamese Government will devise policies to help the Vietnamese community abroad to further develop and maintain its identity.

Representatives of Vietnamese students in the UK also delivered speeches thanking the Vietnamese Government for giving them an opportunity to study in the UK and saying they look forward to returning home and making contributions to the country.
