With only 100 days until the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games, Prime Minister of the UK David Cameron sent a letter to the Vietnamese media calling local residents to come to the UK to enjoy the atmosphere of the Games.
“I know this is the best time in the UK. Our city is ready, the traffic system is also completed, and we are preparing to welcome the world,” he wrote.
The PM expressed his hope that the Olympics do not just welcome international athletes to London for one summer.
“We hope to establish new and long-term connections between Vietnam and the UK,” he said in the letter.
“If you are a student or a lecturer, this is the chance for you to study about a country who has four universities listed in the world’s top ten, and whose scientists have received 75 Nobel prizes in science and technology.
“If you are a businessperson or an investor, the 2012 London Olympic Games is a chance to explore new chances in a country which has the fewest trade barriers set in the world.
“And if you are a tourist, this is the chance for you to experience the unique mixture between the old and new of the UK -- the mixture between history and the heritages of the castles, tourism spots and the royal buildings, in addition to our culture of music, art, theater, and fashion.”
