Implementing the Resolution 36 of the Political Bureau, work on overseas Vietnamese has been proactively implemented and positive results have been achieved in all fields. Every year, an average of half a million of overseas Vietnamese has returned to Viet Nam to visit their relatives, to do business, and to sign cooperation agreements. Around 300 of them are specialists and intellectuals who participate in research, lectures, higher education, post graduate education, cooperation in scientific research and technology transfer. Several of their successful researches have made important contribution to the development of some specialized sectors.

The first Conference of the overseas Vietnamese organized in November 2009 was attended by 1000 delegates representing all strata and generations of overseas Vietnamese in the world.  The second Conference organized from 26-30 September 2012 with the theme “Vision 2020-Overseas Vietnamese‘s integration and development with the country”. It was attended by approximately 1000 delegates who were overseas Vietnamese and representatives of offices and sectors in Viet Nam. This was an opportunity for overseas Vietnamese to get together and be united for the cause of building strong community./.
