He made the suggestions in an article titled “Improving the efficiency of overseas Vietnamese affairs in the new situation”, which was published after Politburo issued a conclusion in this regard on August 12.

Conclusion No. 12-KL/TW affirms consistent guidelines and policies of the Party and the State on strengthening the great national unity bloc, with the overseas Vietnamese community an integral part of the nation, said Hieu, who is also head of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs.

It has contributed to implementing overseas Vietnamese affairs in the new context in a more comprehensive manner, focusing on supporting them to have a firm legal status, develop stably and integrate into host societies intensively and extensively, and maintain their close ties with the homeland.

According to Hieu, the document aims to demonstrate the Party’s and the State’s sentiments and responsibility for Vietnamese ex-pats, meeting their legitimate aspirations and encouraging them to work towards a better life.

Politburo has for the first time added the implementation of comprehensive measures to the conclusion to improve the work, helping Vietnamese gain a firm legal status, stabilise their lives, boost economic development, observe laws and integrate into host societies.

The official said Politburo has paid more heed to teach the Vietnamese language abroad to contribute to preserving traditional culture.

The conclusion highlights encouraging and creating conditions for overseas Vietnamese to contribute to national construction and defence, Hieu added.

He suggested perfecting the mechanism responding to initiatives and opinion contributions of Vietnamese experts, intellectuals and businesses abroad.

With the engagement of the entire political system and Vietnamese at home and abroad, the work on overseas Vietnamese affairs will be done more pragmatically, Hieu believed.
