A delegation from the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee led by President Tran Thanh Man on April 9 visited the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh to extend greetings to Khmer people on the occasion of the Chol Chnam Thmay – the group’s traditional New Year.


VFF President Tran Thanh Man (L) presents gifts to Most Venerable Sok Xane, Vice President of the Executive Council of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha and head of the provincial Buddhist Sangha.

The delegation visited and presented gifts to the Tra Vinh Patriotic Clergy Solidarity Association and veteran revolutionaries from the Khmer ethnic group.

Extending his best wishes to Khmer dignitaries and community on their traditional New Year, Man lauded their contributions to implementing the Party and State’s policy and law, as well as their active engagement in patriotic movements and campaigns launched by the VFF, thus fostering the great national solidarity bloc.

Most Venerable Sok Xane, Vice President of the Executive Council of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha and head of the provincial Buddhist Sangha, thanked the Party and State’s attention and support to the Khmer community.

He affirmed that he will continue calling on the community to strengthen solidarity and promote the great national solidarity.

Chol Chnam Thmay is one of the most important festivals for Khmer people in Cambodia. It usually lasts three days and is celebrated mostly in pagodas. The festival is a demonstration of Khmer people’s aspirations, like many other ethnic groups, to move on from the previous year’s misfortunes and look forward to a promising new year. This year’s event will take place from April 14-16.

At a meeting with the VFF Committee of Tra Vinh the same day, Man hailed the achievements that Tra Vinh has made so far, especially in ensuring social security and poverty reduction.

He asked the locality to exert more efforts in improving locals’ living conditions, while strengthening the national solidarity bloc.
