Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam – Hungary Friendship Association held a friendly gathering in Hanoi on September 18 on the occasion of the two countries’ national days.

Speaking at the event, Vice Chairman of the Association Vu Hoang Linh said the association will further step up bilateral cooperation in science, education-training, culture, economy and trade. It will also renew operations and popularise the images of Vietnam to Hungary and the Vietnamese community living there.
