Posted February 27, 2008

P O W E L L, W y o. - "My Country: Vietnam," a multimedia presentation, will be given by Le Huy Hoang Tuesday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in Room 70 of the Fagerberg Building at Northwest College in Powell.

Hoang is a visiting Fulbright Lecturer this semester at Northwest. He comes to the United States from Tra Vinh University in the Mekong Delta.

His program focuses on the "new" Vietnam, which might be a surprising journey for those who remember the Vietnam of the 1960s and '70s when America was at war there. The current Vietnam enjoys one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Hoang will talk about his country's culture, hopes for the future and relationship to the U.S. in his program.

Admission is free.
