Hanoi (VNA) –
The Vietnam-Canada Friendship Association under the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO) launched a logo design competition in Hanoi on July 11 in celebration of the 45th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties (August 21, 1973).

The winning logo will be used in activities marking the 45th founding anniversary of Vietnam-Canada diplomatic ties as well as other celebrations of the Vietnam-Canada Friendship Association.

Vietnamese individuals and organizations, overseas Vietnamese, and foreigners living in Vietnam are able to join the competition with unlimited number of entries.

There will be one first prize worth 10 million VND (435.2 USD), one second prize worth 5 million VND, and three consolation prizes worth 1 million VND each.

The date for submission is from July 11 to September 25, 2018.

Participants could send their works to the VUFO office at 105A Quan Thanh street, Ba Dinh district, Hanoi.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, former Vietnamese Ambassador to Canada and Vice Standing Chairwoman of the Vietnam-Canada Friendship Association Nguyen Thi Hoi said Vietnam and Canada have witnessed positive development in their rapports via strengthened friendship, win-win cooperation and mutual respect.

The most recent highlight was the issuance of a joint statement establishing a framework for the bilateral comprehensive partnership on the occasion of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s official visit to Vietnam in November 2017, she said.

The joint statement mapped out orientations and measures to boost cooperation in various fields, including people-to-people exchanges, she added.

Since its establishment in May 1999, the Vietnam-Canada Friendship Association has hosted a number of activities to promote Vietnamese land and people to Canadian friends and vice versa, thus enhancing their mutual understanding, she noted.-VNA
