The program is part of the APEC 2017 Summit Week, co-organized by Quang Nam province and APEC National Committee, to introduce the cultural quintessence, history, country and people of Vietnam, especially Hoi An.

It was attended by 150 spouses, and some spouses of ministers and leaders of Quang Nam. The group is accompanied and guided by Dinh Van Thu, Chairman of Quang Nam People’s Committee.

The spouses visited the Pagoda bridge, enjoyed the ancient space, played folk games and studied the daily life of Hoi An people. They also paid a visit to stores of silk, embroidered products, lanterns and handicraft and art products and had talks with small traders at each stop.

Then, the delegation came to Hoi An silk village which has provided silk products based on traditional silk weaving methods for more than 300 years, and also is a place of protecting and promoting the quintessence of traditional craft villages in Hoi An./.
