The event gathered young people from the 10 ASEAN nations and the bloc’s partners of China, Japan and the Republic of Korea. It aimed to create an opportunity for regional students who are studying in Cambodia to exchange with one another and popularise their countries’ special features.

The booth of Viet Nam featured a map of the country that includes Truong Sa (Spratly) and Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelagoes, books on the life and career of late President Ho Chi Minh and other Vietnamese celebrities, along with publications about the country’s beauties.
