The Vietnam Day celebration, a first of its kind, attracted a diverse crowd of students from PREU and other universities. The event featured an array of cultural exhibits, including paintings, art installations, and folk games, along with a quiz on Vietnamese history and traditions. It provided a unique platform for participants to immerse themselves in Vietnam’s rich cultural heritage.

A highlight of the program was a seminar on Russia-Vietnam relations in the evolving political landscape. This thought-provoking discussion was enriched by the presence of dignitaries from Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, eminent scientists and businessmen from both countries, representatives from the Vietnamese Embassy and the Vietnamese Association in Russia, as well as PREU lecturers and students. Their collective insights shed light on the strong bilateral ties and cooperative endeavors in education and training.

PREU Rector Ivan Lobanov, in his address, emphasized the significance of Vietnam Day in fostering closer relations between the two nations. He highlighted PREU’s willingness to collaborate with Vietnam in economic fields such as the digital and green economies and encouraged academic exchanges and joint research between Russian and Vietnamese scholars. The event also witnessed a cooperation agreement signed between PREU and RV-Exim Solutions, further solidifying their partnership in student training.

Vietnamese Ambassador Dang Minh Khoi, in his letter to Rector Lobanov, underscored the inclusive nature of Vietnam Day, aiming to engage not only the university community but also the broader Russian and Vietnamese populations. The ambassador’s praise for PREU’s longstanding cooperation with Vietnam and its contribution to strengthening educational ties and mutual understanding between the two countries was a testament to the university’s impact.

The event also showcased captivating artistic performances by Vietnamese and Russian students, providing a vibrant display of cultural exchange. With approximately 400 Vietnamese students currently enrolled at PREU, the university stands as a leading educational hub for students from Vietnam in Russia, fostering a vibrant community of learners and researchers.
