Speaking at the opening ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Hungary Nguyen Thi Bich Thao said the event aims to raise mutual understanding and exchanges between the people of the two countries via popularising Vietnam, including its culture, food and people to the European nation.
She affirmed that culture and tourism are promising cooperation fields in their bilateral comprehensive partnership, and asked for similar activities to be held in other Hungarian localities.
According to Mayor of District 3 Kiss László, the event will help local people better understand about the Vietnamese community living there, thus opening up the prospects of bilateral collaboration.
During the Vietnam Culture Week 2022, participants have an opportunity to enjoy music performances, ao dai (traditional dress) shows and traditional dishes of Vietnam as well as a photo exhibition on Vietnam- the S-shaped country.
During a working session with the Vietnamese ambassador, Mr. László affirmed that District 3 is ready to welcome Vietnamese delegations and coordinate with the Vietnamese side in organising such cultural events.
He committed his support for the Vietnamese community living there, and hoped to establish twinning ties with a Vietnamese locality./.
