Warm greetings to all readers of Tanoshi Mail.
I am Dinh Hong Nhung, the Vietnamese language consultant at KIA.
The summer holidays have come to an end, and children are heading back to school.
I would like to share a little bit about Vietnam with you. On the 2nd of September 1945, Chairman Ho Chi Minh read the declaration of independence at Ba Dinh Square, a move that began Vietnam’s journey to independence. In addition, on the 23rd of September, people in Japan celebrate the autumn equinox, but that is also the day in 1973, where Japan and Vietnam agreed to establish diplomatic relations. My wish is for both countries to deepen their friendship and live in peace and prosperity,
Vietnamese Language Consultant – Dinh Hong Nhung
