Up to August 2009, 48 departments, districts and towns in the capital city have mapped out and realized their own plan to welcome the grand celebration.

Hà Nội has also closely worked with ministries, agencies and other provinces to prepare for its millennium. At least 20 provinces are proactively launching numerous activities to welcome the capital city’s anniversary.

The grand celebration will be an international event which has been supported by more and more international organizations, including the authority of Seoul and Philéog (France).

The local government of Hà Nội is joining hands with Việt Nam’s diplomatic agencies and embassies to conduct some advertisements for the anniversary, launch the “Hà Nội Cultural Days at UNESCO-Paris,” and campaign for the UNESCO’s resolution on the millennium of Thăng Long-Hà Nội.

The municipal authority approved a detailed program for celebrative activities and the statutes for the Organization Committee’s operations.
