The monthly event aims to contribute to enhancing mutual understanding, friendship, and solidarity among the embassies of ASEAN countries in the Netherlands.

Mayelinne de Lara, representative of The Diplomat Magazine of the Netherlands and the EU, expressed her appreciation for the special relationship among ASEAN countries and diplomatic families in the ASEAN community in the Netherlands.

She proposed the idea of organizing a common cultural event for the embassies of ASEAN countries and other foreign embassies in the Netherlands. The goal of the event would be to promote the unique culture and cuisine of ASEAN countries, especially Vietnam, to the Dutch people.

Participants at the event had the opportunity to taste Vietnamese food and take part in a spring roll making competition.
