Pretoria (VNA) – The Vietnamese Embassy in Mozambique organised several activities on December 14-15 to mark the 73rd anniversary of the Vietnam People’s Army (December 22).

The embassy’s staff made visits to officers, soldiers and workers of Movitel, a joint venture between Vietnam’s military-run group Viettel and a local company, and organised exchanges between Movitel workers and the local Vietnamese community.

The activities aim to give encouragement to the servicepersons who are working far from home, tighten solidarity among the overseas Vietnamese in Mozambique and consolidate the friendship and cooperation between Vietnamese and Mozambican people.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Mozambique Nguyen Van Trung sent a greeting letter to officials and workers of Movitel and gifts to those working in remote areas of Mozambique.

Movitel, the first joint venture of Viettel in Africa, started operation in May 2012. Since then, it has developed a network of over 2,800 transmission stations and 27,650 km of cable and become Mozambique’s biggest mobile operator.-VNA
