More than 32,000 young people from China and Vietnam will gather in south China this month to mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the bilateral diplomatic relations.
The gathering, including 3,000 young people from Vietnam, will take place in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region from Aug. 25 to 29, Chen Jiwa, vice chief of the Communist Party of China's Guangxi regional committee, told a press conference here Thursday.
They would plant friendship trees, attend friendship forums, evening galas and many other activities, said Chen.
