HA NOI (VNS)— A parade of 500 artists from Ha Noi-based theatres on Saturday will help launch the Year of Vietnamese Families.
The launching ceremony will be held at Ly Thai To Square from 8am with the attendance of 1,500 delegates.
The Viet Nam Women's Union and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will guide the year and organise activities in co-operation with provincial People's Committees, ministries and agencies.
