NDO/VNA—More than 200 youth representatives of Vietnam and China participated in a tree-planting ceremony in Lao Cai Province to solidify the two neighbours’ friendship.

The tree-planting ceremony at the northern border province’s centre for youth activities on November 8 was part of the third Vietnam-China Youth Festival, which is taking place in various Vietnamese locales from November 7-10.

The trees will be nurtured by local youths and will serve as a testimony to the “evergreen and ever-sustainable” amity between the youths of the two countries, said Giang Quoc Hung, Secretary of the provincial chapter of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union.

The planting activity aimed to strengthen youth exchanges and encourage environmental protection, he added.

The same day, the Vietnamese and Chinese youth delegations visited Mount Fansipan, the highest peak in Vietnam, and Ham Rong Mountain in Sa Pa District and engaged in a musical exchange with local youths.
