HCM City (VNA) – The International Friendship Day 2015 will take place at Ban Nguyen Lake in Phu My Hung, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City on December 6 to connect generations of Vietnamese alumni who studied abroad.

The event was jointly organised by the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations, the municipal Departments of Culture and Sports, External Relations, and Education and Training; the city’s Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union; and the International Alumni Network (iAN).

The International Friendship Day, themed “Vietnam Go Global” this year, hopes to gather ideas and experience of the alumni for the city’s integration process.

It also creates a venue for cultural exchange to strengthen friendship between participants.

A series of workshop will be held as part of the event where attendees discuss what international alumni could do to contribute to the national integration, which abilities enterprises require from the alumni, and how to start a business.

An exhibition will take place to display traditional costumes and folk games that represent the cultures of Vietnam and other countries, alongside a music festival featuring a mixture of Vietnam’s folk music, pop and symphony performed by both local and foreign artists.-VNA
