Exhibition brings Viet Nam closer to Myanmar
Update: May 26, 2017
An exhibition, featuring nearly 100 photos and paintings in relation to Vietnam and Myanmar, was held in Yangon, Myanmar on May 23 by the Vietnamese Embassy in Myanmar.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Myanmar Luan Thuy Duong hailed the continuing efforts of the two nations’ leaders and people to strengthen their relations in economics, politics, cultural and social affairs.

Cultural diplomacy has become a crucial pillar in their external policy, helping connect the two countries people, she added.

Minister of Religious Affairs and Culture Aung Ko highly appreciated the organisation of the exhibition on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of a Vietnamese representative office in Yangon (1947) and the 42nd anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties (May 28, 1975).

He said that Viet Nam and Myanmar are closely cooperating within the ASEAN Charter framework and the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community (ASCC) Plan of Action.

The event, running until May 25, creates an opportunity for the two nations’ artists to share experience in the fields of culture, arts and religions.
