The event, which will take place over two days, is expected to attract representatives from relevant ministries, agencies, and businesses from both countries.
Dao Quyen Truong, deputy director of the Department of Cultural Affairs and UNESCO in Vietnam, stated that the program aims to promote the image, land, and people of Vietnam to the Vietnamese community abroad and international friends.
As a result, this initiative will contribute to strengthening the existing long-standing relationship between both sides.
The highlight of the event will be an art performance and Vietnamese cultural space in France. The art program, themed “Colors of Vietnam,” will showcase traditional Vietnamese arts to the French audience, including Vi Giam folk songs, southern folk songs, Cham dance, lion and dragon dances, and VOVINAM martial arts.
Notably, the impressive Ao Dai fashion show will feature 20 sets of ancient costumes from the Nguyen Dynasty.
Additionally, the Vietnamese Cultural Space in France will provide visitors with the opportunity to appreciate 25 engraved lacquer works with the theme of “French architectural imprint in the heart of Hanoi.”
Moreover, a selection of photographs featuring UNESCO-recognized world heritage sites is expected to offer visitors a deeper understanding of Vietnam’s beauty, grandeur, and rich cultural heritage.
Following South Africa and France, “Vietnam Days Abroad 2023” will continue with an event in Japan in late November.
