Some 3,000 young Vietnamese visited Nanning in China's Guangxi autonomous region Tuesday to attend the second Vietnam-China Youth Festival along with nearly 6,000 of their Chinese counterparts.
The festival began with the respective Communist Youth Union leaders reading out messages from their countries' presidents, which stressed the importance of the festival as a forum for young people to cooperate for mutual interest.
In attendance were Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao, Guangxi authorities, and Nguyen Thien Nhan, a member of the Vietnamese Party's decision-making body Poliburo and president of the Vietnam Fatherland Front, which oversees nationally-recognized religions, trade and other social unions and associations.
Nhan said the festival provided an opportunity for the two countries' youths to review and deepen their friendship.
A musical gala was held with Vietnamese and Chinese artists performing.
