Quang Nam (VNA) - The opening ceremony of a national taekwondo championship in celebration of the 30th founding anniversary of the Vietnam-Republic of Korea diplomatic ties was held in the central province of Quang Nam on March 7.

The event, running until March 12, sees the participation of nearly 1,000 competitors from 56 taekwondo clubs across the country.
