This morning, Deputy Prime Minister and representatives of the Buddhist Sangha of Vietnam, the government office, the central mass mobilisation commission, and relevant ministries and sectors carried out a field trip to inspect preparations for the ceremony. Until now, 112 countries and territories, 500 international delegations and a number of national leaders have confirmed attendance.
