NDO - Several Vietnamese films are being screened on India's Doordarshan national Television for the first time from September 1-9.

The films include ‘Em Be Ha Noi’ (Hanoi Little Girl) directed by Hai Ninh; ‘Con Chim Vanh Khuyen’ (Passerine Bird) by Nguyen Van Thong; ‘Bao Gio Cho Den Thang Muoi’ (When Will October Come) by Dang Nhat Minh; and ‘Canh Dong Hoang’ (The Wild Rice Field) by Hong Sen.

The event is part of a wide range of activities to mark the 71st anniversary of Vietnam’s National Day (September 2), as well as the 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries (January 7) and the 10th anniversary of Vietnam-India strategic partnership.

The event also aims to mark the Vietnam visit made by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 2-3 at the inivitation of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

In addition, Doordarshan national TV will also broadcast the message delivered by Vietnamese Ambassador to India Ton Sinh Thanh on the bilateral strategic partnership over the past decade which has seen robust development with political trust reinforced by regular visits of senior leaders, including the India visits by President Truong Tan Sang in 2011, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong in 2013, and Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung in 2014, and the visit to Vietnam by Indian President Pranab Mukharjee in 2014.

Economic partnership has immensely developed, with two-way trade growing to US$5 billion in 2015 from only US$1 billion in 2006. The two countries have also enjoyed effective affiliation in the fields of security and defence, especially in information exchange, personnel training and equipment provision.
