The Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCYU) officially presented its teams of volunteers to support the upcoming 132nd Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU-132) Assembly on March 25.

Selected by the Vietnam Volunteer Centre in January, 395 students from universities and academic institutes across Hanoi have shown senses of responsibility and met both health and foreign language requirements.

The teams have been equipped with communication and external relation skills in line with updates on Vietnam’s socio-economic, political and cultural situation during the four-course training programme.

The chosen students have been allocated to the IPU-132 Secretariat and five working groups responsible for the event’s content, protocol, information & communication, security & healthcare and finance & logistics.

Nguyen Phi Long, HCYU Secretary and Vice President of the Vietnam Youth Federation, expressed his belief that the volunteers will contribute their youthful energy and strong enthusiasm to the success of this year’s IPU.

The 132nd Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly (IPU-132) to be held in Hanoi between March 28 and April 1 is among the most historically and diplomatically significant events in Vietnam this year.

Around 1,000 delegates, including high-ranking parliament officials and members of regional inter-parliamentary unions and international organisations worldwide, are scheduled to attend the event.

Over 300 journalists from local and international press and news agencies will cover the meetings.-VNA
