NDO – The Vietnamese Embassy in Egypt organised the programme ‘Vietnam Cultural Day’ in Ismailia province, Egypt on April 2, as part of activities to mark the 55th anniversary of Vietnam – Egypt diplomatic ties.

The event was attended by Ismailia province governor Yassin Taher, Director of the Egyptian Public Library Development Fund Reda El-Taify, and a large number of local visitors.

Documents, books, and photos on Vietnamese culture, history, landscapes, and handicrafts were showcased at the event.

During the cultural day, the Embassy of Vietnam launched a reading room named “A Window to Vietnam” at the Ismailia Public Library to facilitate access to information on Vietnam.

Visitors were able to enjoy a dance with conical hats performed by Vietnamese students in Egypt, and were given a taste of Vietnamese traditional food and coffee.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Egypt Do Hoang Long highlighted the economic potential of the Egyptian province, particularly in agriculture.

He voiced his hope that similar events will be held in other Egyptian provinces, to provide more information on Vietnamese culture for the Egyptian people.

Later that day, the Vietnamese diplomat had a working session with Ismailia province governor Yassin Taher on cooperation between the province and Vietnamese localities.

He detailed Vietnam’s socio-economic situation and highlighted the potential for cooperation between the two nations.

For his part, Taher suggested that the two sides promote links between Ismailia province and Vietnamese localities, particularly in trade, investment, and agriculture.
