Over the past years, people-to-people diplomacy has been carried out in tandem with Party and State diplomacy, contributing to consolidating and enhancing the friendship between people of Hoa Binh province and foreign countries. The provincial Union of Friendship Organisations has significantly contributed to raising the quality of people-to-people diplomacy in the new situation.

Statistics show that nearly 2,730 residents of Hoa Binh are living, working and studying in Thailand, Laos, China, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan (China) and some European countries.

Hoa Binh has made efforts to put in place documents on overseas Vietnamese affairs in the new situation, and promote its land and culture, as well as its development policies, helping enhance its position and reputation in the eyes of international friends.

The province has paid attention to directing the implementation of relevant directives and resolutions issued by the Party Central Committee, the provincial Party Committee, and the provincial People's Committee on people-to-people diplomacy, and stepped up the communications work through different means.

The provincial Union of Friendship Organisations convened its second congress for the 2022-2027 tenure on December 27, 2022. It now comprises the Vietnam-Germany Friendship Association, the Vietnam-Thailand Friendship Association and the Vietnam-Laos Friendship Association, with a total of more than 300 members. It is working for the formation of the Vietnam-Republic of Korea (RoK) association and others.

Last year, the provincial People's Committee admitted 14 foreign non-governmental programmes and projects with commitments worth up to over 3 million USD. To date, 43 programmes, projects and non-project aid programmes have been implemented in Hoa Binh with over 32.9 million USD from 16 non-governmental organisations, agencies and donors.

To complete people-to-people diplomacy tasks set for 2024, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Chuong, who is also President of the union, asked departments, agencies, units and localities to raise awareness of the work, set out specific programmes and plans for events and activities, reform their operations, and consolidate and expand the networks of international friends and partners.
