An art programme featuring traditional music and dance of Israeli artists is set to be held at the Ly Thai To Statue Square by Hoan Kiem Lake in the heart of Hanoi, along with other activities introducing cultural traits of the two countries.

An exhibition on water and agriculture technologies of Israel will also be held on the day, with a wall of rice spanning about 100 sq.m. as the centrepiece. It features future technology that helps change the look of urban areas and improve cultivation capacity right in cities across the world.
