Vinh Long (VNA) – A friendship exchange activity between youths of Vietnam’s Vinh Long province and Cambodia’s Kampong Speu province was held in Vinh Long on March 22 with the theme of “Ever Singing the Friendship”.

The event, which drew the participation of nearly 300 Vinh Long youngsters and over 50 of their Kampong Speu peers, came within the framework of a larger activity which created a chance for the two sides to strengthen their bonds and popularise the image of Vinh Long land and people.

At the event, the Vinh Long Students’ Association passed a decision to establish a club of Cambodian and Lao students who are studying in the province and to present them with 22 scholarships.

Kampong Speu Deputy Governor Sor Soputra described the event as a chance for youngsters of the two provinces to continue the long-lasting friendship between the two provinces and to exchange their experiences in various fields, especially in youth-related work.

For his part, Vice Chairman of the Vinh Long People’s Committee Lu Quang Ngoi said that in the time to come, attention should be continued for the work, with a focus in the field of education so that the youth can get a better understanding on the importance of the friendship and solidarity between the two countries in general and the two provinces in particular.-VNA
