Around 500 delegates from across the world met in the Namibian capital of Windhoek from May 12 to 16 to celebrate the anniversary of WFDY, which was established on November 10, 1945 by young people after the Second World War as part of the World Youth Council to fight against fascism.
The Vietnamese delegation was led by Nguyen Quang Thong, editor-in-chief of Thanh Nien newspaper and deputy chairman of the Vietnam Youth Federation.
They took part in parades, attended workshops on the history of WFDY and paid visits to some cultural and historic spots in Namibia.
The Vietnamese delegation also met with the leaders of WFDY, the Cuban Communist Youth Union and other organizations.
