The central coastal city of Da Nang is gearing up for the upcoming APEC Economic Leaders’ Week, slated for November this year. One of the important preparations is selecting volunteers for the event.

In preparation for the most important event of the year, besides improving necessary infrastructure, Da Nang city is now selecting over 400 volunteers who are students of universities in the locality.

The eligible volunteers are not only qualified in foreign languages but are also conversant with the local area, hard-working, enthusiastic and high responsibility. Those who have volunteered in earlier vast activities and events will be prioritized.

Thousands of students of universities and colleges across the city are now applying for the post. For them, this is not only a chance to improve their knowledge, but also to contribute to the important event while introducing the image of Vietnam and its people to international friends.

The volunteer selection procedure is now being strictly conducted. After being selected, the volunteers will receive training to best serve the event.-VNA
