The agreement was inked by NBG Director Zaimenko and Vietnamese Ambassador to Ukraine Nguyen Hong Thach.
The Vietnamese natural and cultural garden will introduce typical plants and architecture styles of Vietnam, and is to sit beside the gardens of countries such as Indonesia, Iran, India, Japan and the Republic of Korea.
The Vietnamese diplomat expressed his confidence that the project will be a lively form of cultural exchange while creating a landscape for visitors to relax and learn about Vietnamese culture.
After an overall design of the garden is approved by the NBG’s scientific council, the Vietnamese Embassy will begin the construction work, including planting bamboo trees, creating a bronze drum model, and building a traditional northern Vietnamese communal house.
They are scheduled to be inaugurated on the Hung Kings Commemoration Day next year.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, the two sides affirmed that the project, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of bilateral ties, will help strengthen the time-honoured friendship and cooperation between the two countries.
