Vietnam Culture Week in Myanmar took place from September 27 to 30 in Yangon city, Myanmar, aiming to promote the image of the country and people of Vietnam, and promote cultural and tourism cooperation and enhance people-to-people exchanges between the two countries, Nhan Dan reported.

The event was part of a series of Vietnamese events in Myanmar this year to realise the bilateral comprehensive cooperative partnership and culture cooperation agreement for the 2017 – 2020 period signed by the two countries’ leaders.

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Myanmar Luan Thuy Duong said Vietnam – Myanmar ties have been growing in diverse areas over the past years, including in trade and investment, national defence-security, agro-forestry, seafood, energy, telecommunications, tourism, justice, education, culture and people-to-people exchange.

Vietnam is now the ninth-largest trade partner and the seventh-largest foreign investor of Myanmar, she said.
