A Vietnamese delegation has introduced not only their famed national dress of ao dai but also other Vietnamese music and cuisine to attendees at an international conference of young people in South Korea, promising to create impacts on their communities in the East Asian country.

More than 7,000 young businessmen, activists, and leaders from 52 different countries participated in the annual 2019 JCI Asia Pacific Conference, running from June 17 to 20 on the South Korean island of Jeju.

Under the theme of Peace in Action, the event encouraged participants to act for world peace and think for peace in daily actions.

Junior Chamber International, commonly referred to as JCI, is a non-profit NGO of young people between 18 and 40 years old. It has members in 124 countries, and regional or national organizations in most of them.

JCI Vietnam sent a 40-member delegation to the Jeju event.

The Vietnamese participants, who are businessmen and leaders of social projects from all JCI branches in Vietnam, took advantage of the conference to hold a cultural exchange to showcase Vietnamese culture to international friends.

The delegation not only introduced ao dai, Vietnam’s traditional long dress, but also Vietnamese music and food to other participants.

JCI Vietnam likes to strengthen and enhance leadership capabilities of active citizens through social projects.

It has had many successful projects with good impacts on society such as donating solar energy generators and building bridges in rural areas, gifting bicycles to children, and growing trees to protect the environment, among others.

In addition to the social activities, JCI Vietnam also runs courses to improve leadership capabilities of young Vietnamese business owners and open up many cooperative opportunities.
