Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnamese people are invited to take part in the “New Zealand - New Horizon 2016” slogan making and poster design competition.

The contest will be launched by the New Zealand Embassy in Hanoi on April 22.

Coming on the eve of the commencement of direct flights by Air New Zealand between Auckland and HCM City in June, the competition calls for entrants to design a poster and slogan promoting New Zealand tourism in Vietnam.

It is an opportunity for the creative Vietnamese public to share their ideas about NZ and how it could be portrayed to Vietnamese tourists.

“Tourism is a significant part of the economies of New Zealand and Vietnam but from the perspectives of our broader bilateral relationship, tourism has many other important spin offs, such as increasing cultural awareness and understanding, and education links,” said NZ Ambassador to Vietnam, Haike Manning.

“The Air New Zealand’s direct service between Auckland and HCM City commencing in June is a huge opportunity for both countries,” he adds.

More information about the competition can be found on the Embassy’s Facebook fanpage. Winner of the best package (poster and slogan) will earn an all-expenses paid trip for two to New Zealand.-VNA
