The event, held by the Kon Tum People’s Committee, the university, and the Vietnam - Laos - Cambodia Friendship Association, was also intended to introduce the traditional festival, called Bunpimay in Laos and Chol Chnam Thmay in Cambodia, to other students at the school and local people of the Central Highlands province.
This is an annual activity aimed at increasing exchanges among Lao, Cambodian and Vietnamese students, thereby helping enhance friendship and mutual understanding among the three countries’ peoples.
