The Vietnam Record Association and the Vietnam Records Organisation have granted a record certificate to the Advanced International JSC in recognition of the company’s Japanese cherry blossom festival in Hanoi.

The annual event aims to promote cultural exchanges, friendship and mutual understanding between the Vietnamese and Japanese people.

After four years of successful organisation, the festival has become a venue for local people and tourists to admire thousands of cherry blossom trees and branches transported from Japan to Vietnam.

The festival symbolises Japanese culture and serves as a cultural ambassador of Japan.

It also helps promote investment between the two countries as many cooperation contracts, projects and programmes between Vietnamese and Japanese localities have been signed during the festival.-VNA
