Vice President of the Vietnam-US Association Bui The Giang on June 17 received a 18 - member delegation from the Trinity Upper School in New York, who are keen on learning about Vietnam.

The host briefed the guests on Vietnam’s socio-economic development, while introducing the roles played by the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations and the Vietnam-US Association in fostering the friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and foreign nations, including the US.

Giang said he hopes the two countries will work harder to speed up their all-round link in the future, especially in education, economics, trade and humanitarian aid.

Michael Alan Berkowitz, head of the delegation, said the purpose of their visit is to explore the Vietnamese people, nation and culture and the country’s renewal and integration efforts.

He expressed his hope that in the coming time, more activities will be held to further bolster links between the two peoples.

During their stay in Vietnam from June 16-29, apart from participating in a homestay programme in Hanoi, the delegation is scheduled to visit several beauty spots in various places across the nation.-VNA
