Rome (VNA) – The Vietnamese Students’ Association in Italy held a student festival and Vietnamese culture day in Italy at Calabria University on May 6.

Present at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador Cao Chinh Thien reminded the students of unifying and supporting each other and acquiring Italy’s educational quintessence in order to contribute more to Vietnam’s development when returning home.

This year’s event attracted the participation of nearly 200 Vietnamese students and several foreign students across Italy in friendly football matches, art performances, a traditional costume show, and folk games.

Earlier on the same day, Ambassador Thien had a working session with Prof. Gino Microle Crisci, Rector of Calabria University, to discuss measures to promote cooperation between the Italian university and Vietnamese universities.

Thien affirmed that Vietnam paid attention to its cooperation with Italy, especially in training, and considers human resources improvement a motivation to boost development.

The rector asked the Vietnamese embassy to introduce Vietnamese businesses and organisations to projects of Calabria University’s research facilities in biology, renewable energy, environmental protection and mechanics.
