The event was part of the activities celebrating the 45th anniversary of Viet Nam – Japan diplomatic ties (1973-2018), in response to a project to plant one million green trees in the capital city.

Speaking at the event, Japanese Ambassador to Viet Nam Kunio Umeda emphasized that the planting of 500 cherry blossom trees in Ha Noi is not only among the activities to mark the 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries but also significantly contributes to cleaning the environment.

Chairman Nguyen Duc Chung said the cherry blossom trees that he planted at Hoa Binh Park one year ago are developing well, symbolising the continuous development of the friendship and comprehensive strategic partnership between Viet Nam and Japan as well as between Ha Noi and AEON Group

The planting of cherry blossom trees will raise public awareness of protecting the environment, contributing to improving the quality of their lives.

The event, which was attended by Japanese Ambassador to Viet Nam Kunio Umeda and Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung, was held by the AEON Environmental Foundation in response to a project planting one million green trees in the capital city.
