Festival just one to be held around country to provide knowledge and skills in traffic safety.
Toyota Motor Vietnam (TMV), in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET), the Ho Chi Minh Department of Education and Training, and the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC), has organized the “Traffic Safety Festival for Primary Students and Teachers in the School Year 2016-2017” in Ho Chi Minh City.
Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Tu, Deputy General Manager of the Sales Marketing Division, said: “We believe the festival will equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills to resolve real traffic situations. We hope that TMV, MoET and NTSC can organize the festival again in the future as well as other activities to improve traffic safety awareness and students’ skills.”
The festival was held within the framework of Toyota’s Traffic Safety Education Program (TSEP) with the purpose of providing traffic safety education to primary students nationwide. In implementing the TSEP over the last eleven years, TMV hopes to build a better traffic safety culture in Vietnam.
Since the 2007-2008 school year, the festival has been organized annually at the provincial and national levels and seen the active participation of students and teachers.
It has promoted the role of local education and training departments in traffic safety education for primary school students. Sixty-eight provincial traffic safety festivals and eight national festivals have been held to date.
Festivals will be held during February and March in eight cities and provinces: Cao Bang, Lao Cai, Phu Tho, Bac Ninh, Hai Duong, Khanh Hoa, Ho Chi Minh City and Tra Vinh. A national festival will then be held on March 17 to 18.
There is also active involvement in local TSEPs from four TMV dealers in four cities and provinces: Toyota Bac Ninh (Bac Ninh), Toyota Hai Duong (Hai Duong), Toyota Nha Trang (Khanh Hoa), and Toyota Ben Thanh (Ho Chi Minh City). This is a new feature of the festival and expresses the positive effort and contribution to the community of not only TMV but also its dealers around the country.
