The Huong Sac Viet Nam – Au Chau (Viet Nam’s charm in Europe)
association has been set up by Vietnamese expatriates in France with the aim of
preserving Vietnamese traditions and culture among the community in Europe.
According to head of the association Alain Vu Duc Hoang Mi, since it was
established on April 16 last year, the non-profit organisation has held various
activities to promote Viet Nam’s culture, tourism and food in many European
countries, including France, the UK, Belgium and the Czech Republic.
The association is currently selecting candidates for a beauty contest for
Vietnamese women worldwide, slated for next April in the UK, and preparing to
participate in a cultural festival of European ethnic groups.
It also plans to organise annual festivals for Spring, Summer and Autumn.
Counsellor Do Duc Thanh from the Viet Nam Embassy in France lauded the
association’s plans to work with other organisations to hold cultural events,
which has fostered solidarity among Vietnamese expat communities in France and
