At the programme, the State leader extended his New Year wishes to participants during a music show, which was broadcast live on the national Vietnam Television, its digital platforms or the mobile app.

The art exchange featured the development of Vietnamese music and harmonisation between preserving and promoting the traditional cultural values of the nation.

As part of the programme, traditional activities, such as incense offering, the release of carp, a tribute to President Ho Chi Minh at his mausoleum, meetings with Party and State leaders, and a Vietnamese cuisine festival, were held.

The event is held annually by the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs, under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as a run-up to the Lunar New Year festival for Overseas Vietnamese (OVs).
