A ceremony was held in Hanoi on the evening of Oct. 10 to celebrate the 999th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi and announce the Year of National Tourism 2010.

Present at the event, hosted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, were Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Sinh Hung and Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee Pham Quang Nghi and Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen The Thao.

Close to 1,000 artists, actors and actresses entertained local audiences with special art performances that feature the most typical cultural characters of Thang Long-Hanoi and promote the city’s friendly and attractive images to visitors.
