Speaking at the event, Egor Andreev from the MGIMO affirmed the event has become a useful playground for Russian students who are learning Vietnamese language and culture. 

He said 327 Vietnamese students graduated from the MGIMO over the last six decades, and many of them became senior officials and diplomats in Viet Nam. 

Educational cooperation between Viet Nam and Russia has contributed to helping the two countries improve the quality of human resources, thus fostering bilateral relations. 

Nguyen Thi Kim Thu from the Vietnamese Embassy in Russia highlighted the significance of the event’s theme, “The youth of the 21st century”, saying that it helps promote friendship and cultural respect. 

In the framework of the event, a seminar discussing the role played by young people in reinforcing Russia-Viet Nam relations was held. 

Participants also debated global challenges to Vietnamese youths and Russia-Viet Nam cooperation, and the role of youths in the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the two countries.
