The “ASEAN great unity days - One vision, one identity, one community” will take place at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in Hanoi from November 21-23, aiming at strengthening mutual understanding and connection among the bloc’s member nations.

According to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the event, themed “Solidarity-Cooperation-Development”, will offer a special chance for ASEAN member countries to introduce their land, people and culture as well as their efforts in preserving and upholding the region’s cultural heritage values.

It is expected to help Vietnam improve its role in promoting cooperation within ASEAN and introduce the rich culture of the nation’s 54 ethnic groups.

A wide range of activities are planned during the days, including an ASEAN flag hoisting ceremony, art performances and activities to promote ASEAN culture and tourism.

On the occasion, host Vietnam will present some of its world-recognised intangible cultural heritages such as Ca Tru (ceremonial singing), Quan Ho (traditional love duet singing) and Hue royal court music.-VNA
