The ceremony was attended by Vietnamese Consul General to Khon Kaen Hoang Ngoc Son, members of the Executive Board of the Vietnamese Association in Udon Thani, and representatives of the Vietnamese community in the locality.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. Hoang Ngoc Son said that the worship of ancestors is a traditional cultural trait of Vietnamese people, and the death anniversary of the Hung Kings is an important occasion for the country.
The anniversary not only reflects the respect for ancestors and gratitude towards the country’s founders but also educates Vietnamese people on the tradition of remembering their origins while encouraging Vietnamese people abroad to unite and head to the homeland, he emphasized.
He highly appreciated the Vietnamese community’s efforts in Udon Thani in organising the event, where COVID-19 prevention and control measures were strictly implemented./.
