HANOI, Vietnam—November 15, 2020
For more than 70 years, the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO) has been paving the way in people-to-people diplomacy between communities in Vietnam and the global community in the private and public sector. This year, President of AIP Foundation, Mr. Greig Craft was invited to speak on behalf of the international non-government organization community at VUFO’s 70th anniversary event at Vietnam-China Friendship Palace in Hanoi, Vietnam.
“INGO relations with the Vietnamese people have been invaluable. Throughout periods of challenge and uncertainty, such as we are now experiencing with the global pandemic and floods, INGOs and the Vietnamese people have worked together… some for more than 50 years,” Mr. Greig Craft shared. “Our collective successes and contributions are made possible by VUFO because of the guidance and professionalism provided – not only from the central head offices – but by all staff down to the provincial, regional and commune levels.”
Government leaders, ambassadors of Palestine, Armenia, India, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Cuba, East Timor, Germany, Italy, Morocco, Mexican, Malaysia, Mongolia, South Africa, Oman, Finland, Venezuela, Mozambique, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, and representatives from international organizations and foreign non-government organizations in Vietnam, and other distinguished guests, were in attendance.
