HANOI, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese embassy in Vietnam on Wednesday awarded 39 Vietnamese students with the Chinese Government Scholarship.

At a ceremony held at the embassy, four representatives of the Vietnamese students received the scholarships and admission letters to Chinese universities from Peng Shituan and Zheng Dawei, respectively cultural counselor and education counselor of the Chinese embassy.

In his speech, Peng said over the past two years, education authorities from China and Vietnam have been working together to help Vietnamese students in China continue studying, as in 2020 and 2021, over 12,000 Vietnamese students completed their studies at Chinese schools despite difficulties.

Based on sound COVID-19 prevention and control, Chinese authorities are currently creating conditions for more Vietnamese students to return to China to study more efficiently, said Peng.

At the event, Zheng extended his congratulations to the recipients of the scholarships, encouraging them to contribute to the people-to-people and cultural exchanges between China and Vietnam, and promote friendship and cooperation between the two countries.

Do Thuy Hang, a representative of the Vietnamese students and a doctor, said it was an honor to receive the Chinese Government Scholarship, and promised on behalf of all the recipients to treasure the opportunity to study in China and work hard to hone their expertise.

It was the first awarding ceremony for the scholarships held by the Chinese embassy in Vietnam in over three years due to the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic.
