France (VNA) – The Nhan dan (People) newspaper, the daily of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), is joining in the 86th the L’Humanite (Humanity) newspaper festival organised by the French Communist Party (PCF) at La Courneuve Park, Paris.

With a 600 sq.m booth, the newspaper has introduced outstanding achievements Vietnam has recorded over the past 71 years, especially during 30 years of reform.

Visitors to the festival were impressed by photos capturing key industrial projects in the country like the Dung Quat Oil Refinery, along with newly-built modern bridges, terraced fields and UNESCO-recognised Ha Long Bay in the northern province of Quang Ninh.

Charge d'Affairs of the Vietnamese Embassy in France Dang Giang reminisced about the first L’Humanite newspaper festival in 1930, emphasising that over the past 86 years, the event has become a big festival of French and European labourers with various activities such as workshops and artistic activities.

The participants at the festival exchange their experience and belief in order to work together for a world of peace, solidarity, justice and freedom, he said.

Denis Rondepierre, PCF’s Politburo member, said the attendance of the CPV and Nhan Dan newspaper to the festival is of significance, noting that their engagement has contributed to the friendship between the two nations as well as relations between the two Parties.

The 86th L’Humanite newspaper festival, which runs from September 9-12, brings together representatives from communist parties and left-wing parties, newspapers, progressive forces and non-governmental organisations from more than 100 cuountries worldwide.-VNA
