HA NOI (VNS) — About 200 children from Viet Nam, Cambodia and Laos are expected to attend a special exchange programme to be held from July 28 to August 1 in HCM City.
The event, entitled Vong Tay Ban Be – 2014 (Friends' Arms – 2014) will feature a range of activities, Deputy Secretary of the HCM City's Youth Union Pham Hong Son said on Wednesday.
The participants will meet municipal leaders and visit well-known destinations in the city, such as the Ho Chi Minh Museum, the War Remnants Museum, the Independence Palace, the Rung Sac Military Base in Can Gio District and Cu Chi Tunnels, among others.
A cultural exchange programme and performance by Vietnamese, Lao and Cambodian children on July 30 at the city's Cultural Youth House in District 1 will be the highlight of the event.
"The cultural exchange among children from the three countries, the third event of its kind, has been organised to promote international solidarity and friendship, particularly to improve the relations between Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia," said Son.
"In addition, it aims to introduce to the young delegations [from the other two countries] the history, cultural tradition and socio-economic development of Viet Nam in general, and of HCM City in particular," he added. — VNS
