A new app ‘My European Union’ launched by the delegation of the European Union (EU) at an event in Hanoi on April 14 is a great way for Vietnamese to learn everything about the EU.

The app, one of a series of events to mark the 25th anniversary of the diplomatic relationship between the EU and Vietnam, is intended to use on smartphones and tablets, providing an overall picture on the EU and its cultural activities in Vietnam.

Among features of the app is ‘Exploring the EU’, which comes up with information about geography, climate, nature, languages, inventions, and the birth of the EU.

The ‘Knowledge of the EU’ feature deals with the formation, development and operation mechanism, market, currency, policy-planning process and role of the union.

Meanwhile, ‘Visiting the EU’ will tell how to get a visa to the EU.

Programmes and events held in Vietnam by the EU delegation and the EU Cultural Centres throughout 2015 can be found on the ‘List of cultural events’.

Addressing the event, the head of the Delegation of the EU, Franz Jessen reaffirmed the EU’s commitment to building a closer partnership with Vietnam.

With the app, the EU becomes closer to Vietnamese people and mutual understanding will be promoted, he added.-VNA
