HCM City (VNA) - The UNESCO Centre for Culture and Education on April 21 kicked off its Today’s Voice Contest 2016 for Vietnamese youth aged 18-29 across the country.

The annual competition with the theme “Vietnam Youth Capital” aims to help young Vietnamese invest in developing personal assets, thereby bringing benefits to themselves and the country.
