Project Plan



  1. What is the purpose of the meeting and why is it important to your community?
    First of all, I think that China and Vietnam are friendly neighbors, and the cultural and political systems of the two countries are similar. Now China's Silk Road initiative, the Chinese Wikipedia also expressed their willingness and look forward to working with neighboring countries to exchange experiences and enhance mutual trust, so you can learn each other's strengths. At that time, we will be in several well-known universities in Vietnam for Chinese and Chinese characters edit-a-thon. Because we are the first time to Vietnam, so I need to understand the situation in Vietnam, Vietnam community also plans to establish a user group, and Qingdao user group will also be incorporated into the AffCo's plan, so we will be in the user group construction more detailed communication.
  1. If applicable, what benefits have you seen from doing this kind of meeting in the past?
    This kind of meeting is the first time for me. I cherish this hard-won first time.
  2. How will you let participants know about the meeting?
    I will be on our community Facebook page, IM group and my personal social media home page, as well as the Vietnamese community social networking sites or forums to promote.

  1. How will you keep participants engaged after the meeting is over?
    My plan is such that I will stay in touch with the Vietnamese community and will visit each other in the next year. And to promote the establishment of East Asia and Southeast Asia Wikimedia Association.

    This is the ideological collision between the two wikis, we will open Facebook LIVE!
