Head of Delegation – Ambassador Bruno Angelet said: “On the 9th of May, we celebrate Europe Day. The day when, 5 years after World War 2, Robert Schuman suggested to create common institutions and lock the European States into trade, peace and abolish forever war amongst them. Today, the European Union is his greatest achievement. Europe Day is to mark this achievement. We are truly delighted to witness the growing public attention in Vietnam for the “Europ Days” program. Offering a wide range of events, we hope that Europe Days 2017 will continue to attract many people across the spectrum of Vietnamese society.”
This Europe Days 2017 program, consisting of a string of various activities, is the occasion to bring Europe closer to Vietnamese citizens and to strengthen the many bonds that Europe has established with Vietnam.
The “Europe Days 2017” program proposed a combination of activities on music, cinema, theatre, education, literature and environment. Whatever tastes of audience are, the diversity of topics is anticipated to keep them entertained, inspired and enriched.
