It will broadcast live from 3 bridge points: the main stage from Vietnam, the Embassy of Vietnam in Switzerland and the Permanent Representative of Vietnam to the UN, WTO and other International Organisations in Geneva.

The event is co-hosted by the Department of Cultural Diplomacy and UNESCO, under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in collaboration with representative agencies of Vietnam to Switzerland, the Swiss Embassy in Vietnam, Vietnam Television and LeBros.

It will not only contribute to the friendly relations between the two countries but also promote Vietnam’s image as an authentic yet dynamic country to the public in Switzerland and European countries.

It will include five main parts themed “Hello Switzerland! Hello Europe!” “Original Culture,” “Miracle Vietnam,” “Future Generations,” and “See you in Vietnam.”

Through unique art performances and impressive footage, the audience will be introduced to the friendship between Vietnam and Switzerland over the past 50 years, while gaining insights into the unique culture of both countries.

The programme will also be broadcast via platforms like the “Vietnam Days Abroad” Fanpage and Youtube channel.

Following Vietnam Day in Switzerland, Vietnam Day in the US will be held in November, aiming to contribute to promoting cooperation between the two countries, both bilaterally and multilaterally./.
