Under the event, the association will join the Bulgarian Embassy and Hanoi administration to hold an event at the Ly Thai To Monument in downtown Hanoi from November 20-22 to mark the 70-year Vietnam-Bulgaria diplomatic ties. The event will include a meeting, numerous cultural and art activities and a fair with many booths.

The association will also debut a book named Memory of Bulgaria, which is a collection of poems, essays and photos of Bulgaria by its members.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the association to postpone several major events, such as a ceremony to mark the establishment of bilateral diplomatic ties and celebrations of the Bulgarian Education and Culture, and Slavonic Literature Day (May 24).
