Speaking at the event, President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO) Phan Anh Son said with the great and tireless efforts of the leaders and peoples of the two countries, Vietnam – US relations have reaped impressive developments in all fields.

According to him, nearly 750,000 Americans travel to Vietnam each year. In addition, 119 US non-governmental organisations are operating in the 63 provinces and cities across Vietnam.

Young Vietnamese people are becoming interested in US culture and education. President Son believes that people-to-people exchanges between the two countries will continue to make great contributions to their relations.

At the festival, visitors to the festival can also find information about traveling to the US, learning English and register for exchange programmes, scholarships, and jobs at the US diplomatic mission.

The festival also featured musical performances, an “Ao dai” show, and special performances by US hip-hop Arts Envoy Adrienne Mack-Davis and the Bamboo Orchestra.
