Quang Nam (VNA) - The Japan Cultural Days in Quang Nam and the 16th Hoi An-Japan Cultural Exchange kicked off in Hoi An city, the central province of Quang Nam on August 17 to mark the 45th anniversary of the Vietnam-Japan diplomatic relations (1973-2018).

The events, which last until August 19, are jointly organised by the provincial People’s Committee, the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam, agencies, organisations and businesses in Quang Nam and Japan.

They are viewed as opportunities to expand relations and cooperation between the province and its Japanese partners in various fields, including culture, investment-trade, tourism, human resources development and labour.

After 16 years, the Hoi An-Japan Cultural Exchange has served as a cultural bridge connecting Japan with Vietnam and Quang Nam province in particular.

The two events also help introduce images of Quang Nam as a dynamic locality with great potential for development to international friends.

Numerous cultural activities are set to take place during the events, such as introduction of the two countries’ folk games, traditional craft villages, along with re-enactment of ancient streets and cultural exchanges in different periods.

Besides, the organising board will host several seminars on environmental protection, economy, education and culture.-VNA
