Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO) Chairman Vu Xuan Hong welcomed the participants, saying that 2012 is a special historical year for the Esperanto campaign in Vietnam as the country has been honoured to host both the 97th World Esperanto Congress (UK) and the 68th IJK.
This year's theme “Esperanto – Bridge for Peace, Friendship and Development” shows the humanity and youth of the two events, he added.
Hong hoped that Esperanto will continue its mission to promote friendship and solidarity among people for peace and development.
The Chairwoman of TEJO Vietnam, Nguyen Thi Phuong, said she believes that the congress will be a true festival for young people.
