Each year, the Vietnamese delegation selects a theme to indicate the spirit of the contingent and guide their thoughts and actions.

Year of 2018 marks the 45th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Japan and the celebration of 45 years of SSEAYP. Thus, the Vietnamese youth contingent composed a theme called "Embracing Vietnam" and created a video clip showcasing three regions of Vietnam. 

The intention of the participating youths is not only to "embrace" the Vietnamese quintessence to introduce to international friends, but also to learn valuable lessons from the trip and bring back to the home country.

Speaking at the meeting, HCYU First Secretary Le Quoc Phong said that being a participating youth of SSEAYP is the dream of many youths in Vietnam. These outstanding youths with good achievements in many fields of study and work will represent the image of the country when joining activities with other youths from the Southeast Asia countries and Japan.

Mr. Le Quoc Phong expects that the youth ambassadors will participate in the progam with full enthusiasm and sense of responsibility for themselves and for the nation.

"Each youth member with good performance of roles and responsibilities will help whole contingent fulfill the mission of representing the Vietnamese youths, representing the country when participating in the 45th Ship for Southeast Asian and Japanese Youth Program (SSEAYP) in 2018”, said Mr. Le Quoc Phong.
