The seminar was on the occasion of the 72nd anniversary of the Vietnam-USA Society, a member of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations.
VUS President Nguyen Tam Chien said that the formation of the VUS, which was formerly the Vietnam-US friendship association, showed Vietnam treasured the development of its relations with the US. Thanks to efforts of both sides, bilateral relationship was normalized and developed to comprehensive partnership, he noted.
Chien stressed that VUS should help with organising more meetings and increasing all-round cooperation between people of the two countries, thus deepening bilateral ties and connecting efforts in dealing with war-era problems.
According to Nguyen Van Huynh, a member of the VUS Standing Committee, along with boosting collaboration in economy, science-technology, culture, education, VUS should also strengthen mutual understanding between Vietnamese and US people through the organization of seminars to introduce their nation and people, the publishing of books on VUS history, and meetings with US civil organisations and businesses in Vietnam.
He also stressed the need to maintain and develop the VUS English Centres.
Meanwhile, Dr. Pham Xuan Dai, VUS Standing Committee member, said that the society should expand its membership to receive ideas from people from all walks of life in all fields.
