The two-day event drew the participation of more than 20 countries and territories across the world.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Egypt introduced many documents, books, photos and objects on culture, history, country and people of Vietnam, especially its outstanding achievements.

Besides books on tourism introducing exciting destinations and unique features of regions, there also were maps and documents on Vietnam’s islands and the country’s specialities of fried spring rolls and coffee.

At this year’s event, visitors could also enjoy a dance with conical hats performed by Vietnamese students wearing ao dai (traditional long dress), along with performances of the Vietnam Circus Federation.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Egypt Do Hoang Long voiced his hope that the event will provide more information on Vietnamese culture for international friends.

Vietnam and Egypt will mark the 55th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties in 2018, and the event is part of the Embassy’s activities to celebrate the occasion, he added.
