The Vietnamese delegation showcased a diverse range of handcrafted products, from ceramics and lacquerware to vibrant brocade and silk. The “Vietnamese Kitchen” pavilion took center stage with a mouth-watering spread of spring rolls, fresh rolls, baguettes, and the ever-popular iced milk coffee.

Both pavilions attracted a lot of attention, with visitors eager to learn about Vietnam’s rich cultural heritage.

Among the notable guests were Dennis Francis, President of the UN General Assembly, and his spouse. They took a keen interest in the Vietnamese displays, indulging in the delicious cuisine and inquiring about the country’s traditions.

President Francis and his spouse expressed their enthusiasm for visiting Vietnam soon, eager to explore the country’s culture and cuisine firsthand. They were delighted by the unique offerings and warm hospitality that Vietnam is renowned for.

Organized by the United Nations Delegations Women’s Club, the fair was a charitable initiative, and Vietnam made a significant contribution to the fund through its sales revenue.
