Thua Thien-Hue (VNA) – The Japan Business Association in Vietnam (JBAV) and the Japan Economic Association (JEA) presented scholarships to 24 needy students in the central city of Hue on December 2.

The scholarships, each worth 200 USD, came to the University of Hue’s students with outstanding academic performance.

This is the 15th time since 2001 the Japanese organisations have granted scholarships to Vietnamese students as part of their Keidanren scholarship fund.

Addressing the event, a representative from the JBAV hoped the gifts will help students better their study and then have more occupation opportunities in the future.

The grant is expected to contribute to strengthening solidarity between the two countries and their people, he said.

Some Japanese businesses and individuals in Hue city have raised funds to build a friendship stele between Japan’s Fukuroi city and Hue to commemorate the Dong Du movement. The stele is placed at Phan Boi Chau relic site in the city.-VNA
