24 April 2012: The Ho Chi Minh City union of friendship organisations (HUFO – Liên hiệp các tổ chức hữu nghị) has organised an information morning for NGOs. During its intervention PACCOM has given information about the regulations on work permits for foreigners and announced that as from 1 June 2012 new rules would be applicable for NGOs and the creation of their offices. Those new rules would make the current ones in force less strict. PACCOM will send the new directives by mail to the ONG. Then, 36 NGOs have received a certification of merit from the president of “HUFO” for their activities in Vietnam.
Our young representative Thiện Phước alias Coca was very honoured to receive the certificate for our association. At the end of the morning all the participants gathered around a buffet organised by “HUFO”.
