Vietnamese media assess the magazine as an important information channel, especially for Vietnamese people living, studying, and working in Germany and the EU.

Launched on January 24, 2009, Hương Việt updates information about the Vietnamese community, the homeland, and Germany, which helps more than 200,000 overseas Vietnamese people in Germany better integrate into the host community.

The magazine also joins in organising or sponsoring dozens of annual community events in Germany. Notably, it also co-organises cultural events, sports, music, exhibitions, beauty contests, and singing contests, aiming to help overseas Vietnamese preserve and promote the Vietnamese cultural values and strengthen solidarity in the Vietnamese community.

The magazine organsised a trip for overseas Vietnamese to return to Việt Nam to hand over the condolence book of the magazine’s readers to the family of General Võ Nguyên Giáp and visit Trường Sa.

In 2024, on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of Hương Việt magazine and the 50th anniversary of Việt Nam – Germany relations, the magazine is preparing a special programme promoting Vietnamese culture.

With efforts and contributions for more than a decade, Hương Việt Magazine and its Editor-in-Chief Phạm Khánh Nam have received many awards, and certificates of merit from agencies at all levels. VNA
