The event showcased performances by students from secondary schools, high schools, and universities affiliated with the association. Its objective was to promote mutual cultural and artistic understanding and foster stronger relations between the two nations.

In his opening speech, Chairman of the association Vu Dang Dinh expressed gratitude for the collaboration with the British Embassy in promoting peace, solidarity, and education. The association has successfully organized cultural exchange events and introduced traditional Vietnamese culture to friends from the UK.

Marcus Winsley, Deputy Ambassador of the UK to Vietnam, emphasized that the Vietnam-UK ties have been consistently strengthened and nurtured over the past five decades.

The UK was one of the first Western countries to establish diplomatic relations with Vietnam on September 11, 1973, during Vietnam’s struggle for national independence and reunification.

Since both countries elevated their relations to a strategic partnership in 2010, significant progress has been made in their shared history.
