Addressing the event, Ambassador Nguyen Van Thao lauded Geyskens's initiative and tireless efforts over the past decade to organize the golf tournament and raise funds in support of AO victims in Vietnam.

Her contributions have contributed significantly to helping AO victims improve their lives, and strengthening friendship and understanding between Vietnam and Belgium, he said.

An exchange of 30 businessmen, diplomats, Vietnamese, and Belgian friends was also held within the framework of the event, offering an opportunity for them to learn about investment and business opportunities in Vietnam and promote the country's image to international friends.

Visitors to the tournament were also treated to traditional musical instrument performances which aim to promote Vietnamese culture.

A total of 307.4 million VND (12,114 USD) was raised during last year's tournament.
