The honouring programme was held in celebration of the 64th anniversary of the Hanoi Liberation Day (October 10, 1954-2018). Nine coaches and 29 athletes who contributed to the joint success of the Vietnamese sporting delegation at the recent 18th Asian Games, and 20 businesses who won the 2018 Thang Long Cup, also received awards at the event. Addressing the event, Vice Chairman of Hanoi city People’s Committee, Nguyen Van Suu, said that, apart from the honourees, there are many other people who have promoted the fine tradition and culture of Hanoi. He expressed his hope that Hanoians would continue turning their love for Hanoi into practical actions in order to facilitate the development of their community, the city, and the country in general. Also on the occasion of the Hanoi Liberation Day’s celebration, a photo exhibition on Hanoi’s traditional crafts opened at the Temple of Literature on the morning of the same day. The four-day exhibition displays 80 photos capturing the lives of artisans and craftsmen in the traditional craft streets and villages in the capital city.
