Buenos Aires (VNA) – The Vietnam Embassy in Argentina organised an event to promote Vietnamese tourism and cuisine in Buenos Aires’ La Plata city on October 20.

Opening the event, Claudio Aguilar, Vice President of the Federation of Hotel and Gastronomy of Argentina (FEHGRA), stressed that Vietnam is a favourite destination of Argentineans for its cultural diversity and scenic sites.

The country’s history and food are also a big draw to international tourists, he said.
