The Vietnam National University- Hanoi (VNU) held a pre-New Year get-together for its international students in Hanoi, on December 30, an event that it organised annually for years.

As many as 800 students from different parts of the world are studying at the VNU, according to Associate Professor Dr. Nguyen Kim Son, VNU Vice President.

They have helped building bridges between their nations and Vietnam, Son said and sent his New Year greetings towards them.

He hoped that the students keep doing their best while studying in Vietnam and will multiply what they had learnt when returning home.

Enticing music and dancing performances characterising various cultures fostered mutual understanding and solidarity among fellow students at the event.

VNU is one of the two national universities in Vietnam.-VNA
