The Embassy of Belgium in Vietnam and the University of Industrial Fine Arts will hold a week-long logo design workshop from October 30 within the framework of a logo design contest marking the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Belgium and Vietnam next year.

The workshop will be presided over by Belgian Ambassador H.E. Jehanne Roccas and Dr. Nguyen Xuan Nghi, Rector of the University of Industrial Fine Arts.

Through the week-long workshop, conducted by Arno Heeren, a Belgian professional graphic designer, the Embassy seeks to give students from the university the opportunity to harness their creative potential and gain a critical insight into modern logo design.

With knowledge and inspiration gained from the workshop, the students will then design their own logos for the contest.

The winner will be selected through a Facebook contest and a jury comprising Ambassador Roccas, a representative from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and professionals.

The winning design will serve as the official logo for all celebrations linked to the anniversary. The winner will be offered on-the-job-experience through a two-week internship at the creative PR agency Happiness Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City, founded by Belgian Alan Cerutti.

Friendship and multifaceted cooperation between Belgium and Vietnam have been developed over the last 44 years since the two countries established diplomatic relations in 1973.

This year, the two are also looking back on 40 years of the presence of Belgian development cooperation in Vietnam. Belgium has taken pride in supporting the development of Vietnam in a number of areas. In particular, it has assisted the education sector through scholarship programs and knowledge exchange. More than 2,000 Vietnamese have received a Belgian education to date.

From being long-standing partners in development cooperation, Belgium and Vietnam have been maturing bilateral ties in different sectors. The workshop is an occasion for Belgium to reiterate its support towards education in Vietnam and honor 45 years of diplomatic relations with the country.
