Projecting the national flag of a country to their proud Burj Khalifa tower on significant events is a ceremony performed by the Dubai and UAE authorities to show respect for partners they deem special.

Just one day earlier, the tower also displayed the national flag of Uzbekistan in commemoration of their Independence day on September 1. The national flags of certain nations, including the US, Russia, Japan, etc, used to appear on the tower.

The UAE is Vietnam's largest trading partner in the Middle East and Africa, while Vietnam is considered the country's leading gateway to the ASEAN market, according to VNE. The two countries' bilateral trade turnover advanced to around $6 billion in 2019, with Vietnam having an export surplus of around $5 million.
