Speaking at the ceremony, Indian Ambassador to Vietnam Parvathaneni Harish said that Yoga has been even more popular worldwide since the United Nations General Assembly chose June 21 as the International Yoga Day following the proposal of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He stated that Yoga has been a key element contributing to the friendship and solidarity between Vietnam and India. The Indian Ambassador stressed that Yoga is India’s gift to humanity, given that it helps people balance their bodies, mind and soul.
Meanwhile, Truong Minh Tien, Vice Director of the municipal Culture and Sports, said that the two countries have enjoyed sound people-to-people exchanges. Temples from Cham Civilisation, My Son sanctuary in Quang Nam province together with the development of Yoga have been clear evidence to the Vietnam-India cross cultures, he added.
Mr. Tien also stated that Vietnam and India boast huge potential to further multi-faceted cooperation. According to him, Hanoi is currently home to 18 Indian investment projects with a total registered capital of 4.6 million USD. Mr. Tien suggested that Ha Noi and India’s localities should promote collaboration, focusing on addressing barriers and prioritise cooperation in fields of two sides’ strengths.
Other eight localities also responded to the Yoga Day, including Ho Chi Minh City, Vinh Phuc, Vinh city (Nghe An), Da Nang city, Nha Trang city (Khanh Hoa province), Long An province, Dong Nai province and Can Tho City.
