Hanoi to mark 60th anniversary of friendship between Hanoi - Hue - Saigon in October (19:47 23/09/2020)
Under the plan, the conference held to mark the 60th anniversary would be take place on October 3, 2020 at the hall of Hanoi People’s Committee with the participation of leaders of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Hue; scientist and historical witnesses; as well as representatives of some departments, units, social and political organization of Hanoi, among others.
The municipal Department of Culture and Sports would be the focal point in cooperating with other related agencies in drafting the plan for the conference.
The friendship of the three cities in Hanoi, Saigon and Hue was established 60 years ago (October 8, 1960) constituting a historical event with significant political meaning, at the same time having a major impact in the liberation of the South and eventually the country’s reunification later.
The event marking 60th anniversary of friendship between Hanoi – Hue – Saigon, therefore, is necessary in this context as part of the process of evaluating its political, economic and social meaning, as well as the result in cooperation between the three cities; drawing lessons from the past and further promote friendship and cooperation between Hanoi and other provinces/cities across the country.
