The event also encouraged more motivation for students to study and tighten the friendship and solidarity between the two countries.

The celebration was held by the Hue University and Hue College of Education with various traditional rituals such as splashing water to pray for prosperity in the new year, and tying strings around a person’s wrist to wish for good health, luck and success.

On this occasion, Lao students introduced their unique culture through traditional dance.
