Hanoi (VNA) – The visiting President of the National Assembly of France, Claude Bartolone, participated in the 2016 Francophone Festival held in the Hanoi University (HANU) on March 19.

The President visited booths of Francophone organisations and agencies, embassies of French-speaking nations in Vietnam, and French departments from Vietnamese universities, while joining exchanges with students.

Jointly organised by HANU and the French Embassy in Vietnam, the event offered French-language teachers and students, as well as French language lovers a chance to exchange and share experience in teaching and studying the language.

It included many activities, including an art performance, a French-eloquence contest, and meetings among Francophone agencies in Vietnam operating in the fields of education, culture, and development cooperation.

This is the sixth consecutive year the Hanoi University has hosted the event, which was to celebrate the International Francophone Day (March 20).-VNA
