Over 200 delegates and representatives from embassies, diplomatic corps, international and non-governmental organizations in Vietnam, as well as central and local agencies took part in the 2015 Friendship Spring Tour on March 21 in the districts of Quoc Oai and Phuc Tho of Hanoi.
Jointly held by the Hanoi Union of Friendship Organizations (HAUFO) and the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO) to enhance people-to-people external affairs, the annual event popularizes the country and city’s historic sites and landscapes. Thay Pagoda (Quoc Oai district) and Hai Ba Trung Temple (in Hat Mon commune, Phuc Tho district) will be two destinations this year.
At the event, Moroccan Ambassador to Vietnam and Head of the Diplomatic Corps El Houcine Fardani held that the program would create a good chance for foreigners living and working in Vietnam to learn more about Vietnam’s cultural diversities and heritages. He believed that the activity would contribute to tightening mutual understanding and building a cultural bridge between Vietnam and foreign countries.
