As part of his speech, Ambassador Le Viet Duyen said that after experiencing more than 4,000 years of national construction and defence, the nation, as home to 54 ethnic groups, boasts a rich and diverse culture. Now, it has over 40 tangible and intangible cultural heritage aspects recognised by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

In response, Carolus Wimmer, president of the Venezuela – Vietnam Friendship Association (CAVV), expressed his positive view of the progress gained by the Vietnamese people over recent times.
