– An exhibition featuring photos and documentary films about the ASEAN Community is taking place in the southern province of Binh Phuoc from December 15.

The event is jointly organised by the Ministry of Information and Communications in coordination with the provincial People’s Committee.

On display are 300 photos and nearly 60 documentary films by directors from ASEAN member countries which spotlight the beauty of land and people, and culture of regional nations.

Addressing the event, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Hoang Vinh Bao said the exhibition is part of the Vietnamese Government’s action programme in the 2017-2020 on promoting communication activities about ASEAN, the formation of ASEAN Community and benefits it brought to regional people.

The exhibition demonstrates Vietnam's desire to join hands in building an ASEAN Community for peace, stability, development, contributing to raising the public awareness of current issues such as environmental protection, climate change and ethnic groups in the ASEAN Community, Bao said.

Hanif Salim, Indonesian Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City said the exhibition shows the intra-bloc solidarity, and imparts knowledge and understanding of the ASEAN Community to young people, thus further strengthening cooperation efforts to turn ASEAN into a region of peace, progress and prosperity.

Vice Chairwoman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Tuyet Minh said the event offers a chance for Binh Phuoc to promote its potential, and investment opportunities in the locality to domestic and international investors.

The exhibition will last until December 17./.
