The event’s organising committee will present cash prizes totalling VNĐ80 million (US$3,600).
Đà Nẵng was recognised as one of five central government cities in 1997 along with Hà Nội, HCM City, Hải Phòng and Cần Thơ. It was designated a ‘First Class’ Vietnamese city in 2003.
The former capital of the then Quảng Nam-Đà Nẵng Province is expected to play a prominent role in ASEAN and Asia in the future. The city will host the 2017 APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation) Summit and the annual Đà Nẵng International Fireworks Competition next year. — VNS
