NDO - A delegation of 28 young Vietnamese people will attend the 45th Ship for Southeast Asian and Japanese Youth Programme (SSEAYP), carrying with them the most impressive images of Vietnam on a 52-day journey.

The programme is expected to see more than 300 participants from the region, who will take part in various activities aboard Nippon Maru and visit five countries, namely Vietnam, Japan, Brunei, Thailand and the Philippines, from October 23 to December 13.

The Vietnamese delegation will bring on the journey a song, written by its members, titled “Embracing Vietnam” with the video produced in three regions of Vietnam.

Speaking at a meeting with the delegation on October 18, Youth Union First Secretary Le Quoc Phong expressed his hope that the 28 Vietnamese delegates will build on their confidence, language skills and social knowledge to affirm themselves during the entire journey.

“You will be goodwill ambassadors to present the beautiful images of Vietnam before international friends”, Phong emphasised.

SSEAYP is a joint programme between Japan and ASEAN countries in which youths from respective countries participate in various activities to promote friendship and mutual understanding.
