Vietnam ready for ASEAN+3 Song Contest

Preparations for the ASEAN+3 Song Contest scheduled for Saturday and Sunday have been completed.

A large stage with 1,500 seats is ready for the qualifying and final rounds of the competition hosted by the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) to celebrate the 50th founding anniversary of ASEAN. Ms. Nguyen Thuy Hoa, Director of VOV's International Cooperation Department, said the contestants and guest singers have a good impression on Vietnam.

Everything is ready. The contestants are so excited, Hoa added.

The contestants are aged from 18 to 35. Thai singer Paisarn Sunggoon said: It's great honor for me to represent Thailand at the contest. This is an opportunity for me to exchange experience and make new friends. More importantly, I can introduce Thai songs to ASEAN friends.

The semi-final round takes place on Saturday night at FLC Resort in the central province of Thanh Hoa. 10 best contestants will be chosen for the finale on Sunday. The contest attracts singers from ASEAN, Japan, China, and the Republic of Korea.
