NDO/VNA – The Vietnamese Cultural and Art Association in the Czech Republic have held a gathering at the Sapa commercial centre in Prague on the occasion of the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet) festival.

The highlight of the programme, held on January 8, was an Ao dai (Vietnam’s traditional long dress) show and art performances.

Hoang Dinh Thang, Chairman of the Union of Vietnamese People Associations in Europe which sponsored the gathering, lauded the Mrs Ao dai fund in Europe for its contributions to bringing together Vietnamese across Europe.

Ambassador Thai Xuan Dung said the fund has played a role in assisting Vietnamese at home affected by natural disasters, as well as the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ambassador expressed his hope that the union and the Vietnamese Association in the Czech Republic will continue their support to the Vietnamese Cultural and Art Association in organising art and cultural activities, helping to preserve and promote traditional culture.
