The activity was held to commemorate the 187th death anniversary of Venezuela’s national liberation hero Simon Bolivar, and pay honor to the great Vietnamese leader, contributing to tightening the friendship between Vietnam and Latin American nations.

Simon Bolivar (1783-1830) was the greatest leader of Latin America's independence movement in the beginning of the 19th century. The struggle led by him helped six countries - Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia – gain independence from Spain.
