 At a press conference in Hanoi on Thursday, President of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha Thich Thien Nhon said that this important event will affirm Vietnam’s responsibilities in the United Nations.

This will be the third time Vietnam hosts the Vesak Celebrations, he said, adding that the previous events in 2008 and 2014, left lasting impressions on international friends.

The Vesak Celebrations and international conference are expected to welcome 10,000 participants, including dignitaries, scholars and researchers from 100 countries and territories worldwide.

They will get together to discuss global peace, stability, and the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on the Buddhist population.
