London (VNA) – The Vietnam Days in the United Kingdom 2022 will take place from March 28 to April 10, featuring a series of cultural, art, sport and trade-investment promotion events, mostly in London.
The Vietnam Days will be organised by the Embassy of Vietnam in the UK, in collaboration with organisations and enterprises of both countries, on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, marking the 70th anniversary of her accession to throne.
The events will focus on enhancing the bilateral cooperation in various areas, ranging from education and training, green transformation, renewable energy, fintech, startup and innovation; and promoting Vietnam as an attractive destination for tourists in the context that the country has reopened its door to international visitors.
Highlights among these are a music show entitled “Beautiful Vietnam”, painting exhibitions, investment promotion and travel forums and a friendly golf tournament in London. There will also be an education forum and a workshop for startup cooperation between Vietnam and the UK in Cambridge.
Given the thriving relations between the two countries, Vietnam has become increasingly attractive to British investors and enterprises. The Vietnam Days are expected to further promote Vietnam’s natural landscapes, culture, people and great potential in the UK and open more opportunities for taking the bilateral partnership to a new height./.
