In his opening remark, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Dong Van Lam said the programme is held to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic ties (September 21, 1973-2018).
Through the exchange, Tra Vinh wishes to introduce the Japanese people to the cultural beauties and traditional customs of Vietnam in general and the province in particular, he said.
The local leader took the occasion to thank the Japanese Government for funding many programmes and projects in Tra Vinh over the past time. Among them are a specialised credit programme, a project to improve agricultural promotion system and another on medical equipment supply, which contribute to giving a facelift to the province’s extremely difficult rural areas.
For his part, the Japanese Consul General lauded the fine friendship between the two countries and expressed his wish that Vietnam-Japan exchange will be expanded to many other fields so that Japanese businesses have more conditions to explore investment opportunities in the locality.
The Vietnam-Japan Cultural Exchange Programme 2018 featured a wide range of activities, including performances of traditional instruments, folk games, re-enactment of a countryside market day, kimono and ao dai (long dress) shows, and Japanese dance performances.
Japanese and Vietnamese handicrafts and cuisine were also introduced at the event.
