Speaking at the event, VUFO President Phan Anh Son said with the great and tireless efforts of the leaders and peoples of the two countries, Vietnam-U.S. relations have reaped impressive developments in all fields.

U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Marc E.Knapper is seen at the festival.

Now, nearly 750,000 Americans travel to Vietnam each year, and 119 U.S. non-governmental organizations are operating in the 63 provinces and cities across Vietnam. Young Vietnamese people are interested in U.S. culture and education, Son said, adding he believes that people-to-people exchanges between the two countries will continue to make great contributions to their relations.
