Besides many other meaningful activities, Foreign Trade University hosted the flower arrangement contest to celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8th). The contest was joyfully welcomed and actively joined by many FTU’s faculties, departments and institutions.

The flower arrangement contest is an annual event held by Foreign Trade University to welcome the International Women’s Day. This year, the event welcomed the appearance of representatives of FTU’s Board of Director: Assoc.Prof. Bui Anh Tuan, Party Committee Secretary, President of FTU, Director of VJCC Project; Assoc.Prof. Dao Thi Thu Giang, Party Committee Deputy Secretary, Assoc.Prof. Nguyen Thu Thuy, Deputy President of FTU and Dr. Pham Thu Huong – Chairman of FTU’s Labour Union. The contest also welcomed the presence of representative from Vietnam National Children’s Hospital and world-renowned floral designer Nguyen Manh Hung.

This year, the contest has renewed its rules and content: flowers and tools are prepared in advance by organizers, no longer by contestants. This is what makes the contest more competitive and exciting than ever.

Team of VJCC institute chose the topic “FTU women fly high” for the work which was finished after 45 minutes with the creative mind and skillful hands of VJCC’s staffs.

The work took inspiration from the image of a sailing boat, representing FTU’s women flying high to reach new destinations and new goals in life and career. The boat is built upon the 3 key characteristics of FTU’s women which are: intellect – courage – soul.
