The HUFO and the city's Vietnam – Bulgaria Friendship Association on May 24 held a ceremony to celebrate the Education, Culture and Slavonic Literature Day, a national holiday celebrating Bulgarian culture and literature as well as the alphabet.

Speaking at the event, HUFO Chairman Vuong Duc Hoang Quan congratulated the Bulgarian people on the occasion that honours the Kyril and Mephodi brothers who invented the first Slavonic letters, adding that the birth of Slavonic alphabet has promoted cultural development in Eastern Europe, contributing to the civilisation of Europe. Over 250 million people worldwide are using the Slavonic alphabet.

As Vietnam and Bulgaria are fighting COVID-19, the HUFO sends VND 100 million (USD 4.299) raised by the city's Vietnam-Bulgaria Friendship Association to the Bulgarian people to help them combat the pandemic and restore socio-economic activities soon.

For her part, Bulgarian Ambassador to Vietnam Marinela Petkova said the day is a great festival of Bulgaria, marking its cultural development by preserving cultural and historic events via its alphabet.

The Bulgarian Ambassador said the annual event contributes to friendship and cooperation between the people of Vietnam and Bulgaria.
