Deputy Director of the Department of Cultural Diplomacy and UNESCO, under Vietnam Ministry of Foreign Affairs Tran Quoc Khanh said: “Organizing an online event on such a large scale amidst the Covid-19 pandemic is extremely challenging. However, we have turned challenges into opportunities and put our heart and soul into making the program as lively as possible.”

He hopes that the program will not only tighten the relations between Vietnam and Switzerland but also introduce to the European community a Vietnam that is ready to cooperate with other countries in the world, a country with a culture of rich and friendly history.

Following this event, Vietnam Days in the United States 2021 is scheduled to take place this November, contributing to enhancing the cooperation in various areas between the two countries.
