“I and my friends met and set up friendship with many Vietnamese peers during the festival,” Xu Shao Dong, a student from Shanghai, said before leaving Vietnam.
Xu added that he was moved and impressed by the new look of Vietnam and the friendliness and perseverance of young people here.
Meanwhile, Chen Huang Hui from Guangdong said he had participated in a number of youth exchanges in India, Japan and the Republic of Korean, but this time in Vietnam was a special experience.
Vietnam has its own characteristics and the locals are very hospitable, he noted.
Chen expressed his hope that the friendship between Vietnamese and Chinese youths, which was nurtured by late Presidents Ho Chi Minh and Mao Zedong, will continue to grow.
The festival took place across 7 provinces and cities in Vietnam. Participants discussed their experience in the promotion of trade, culture and tourism as well as environmental protection.
