China – ASEAN youth exchange festival underway in China
The festival is jointly organised by the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, the China-ASEAN Association and the Foreign Affairs Office of Hainan province.
During the event, about 100 young leaders from Hainan and seven ASEAN countries – Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia – will take part in conferences, exchanges, visits, musical performances and sports competitions, among others.
The first edition of the festival was launched in Beijing in 2013, with subsequent events held annually in different provinces across China. The festival has become a key platform for young leaders from ASEAN and China to conduct exchanges.-VNA
