Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnamese Embassy in Germany hosted a ceremony on December 22 to celebrate the 73rd founding anniversary of the Vietnam People’s Army.

In his speech, Ambassador Doan Xuan Hung applauded contributions from associations and organisations of Vietnamese war veterans in Germany to promoting solidarity among the Vietnamese community in the host country, and to the homeland’s development.

He expressed his hope that veterans in particular and their organisations in general, under the strong support of the Vietnamese community in Germany, will make more contributions to enhancing community connection in the host country in the coming time.

The same day, Vietnamese Ambassador to Tanzania Nguyen Kim Doanh visited two member companies of the military-run telecom group Viettel in the country on the occasion of the anniversary.

The diplomat praised efforts made by the Viettel Tanzania (Halotel) to become the third largest mobile operator in the East Africa market, expressing his belief that the firm will work harder to turn it into a leading telecommunication company in the country.

Success made by Halotel has significantly contributed to promote Vietnam’s image to Tanzanian people and foreigners living and working in the country, he stressed.

At the Viettel Tanzania work company, the ambassador asked the firm to consider the possibility to contract some construction projects in Tanzania, towards helping the host country build high-quality infrastructure.-VNA
