Quang Nam (VNA) –The Korean Day programme concluded in Tam Ky city, the central province of Quang Nam, on December 16 after entertaining visitors with a range of activities.

The two-day event was jointly held by the provincial People’s Committee and the Embassy of the Republic of Korea (RoK) in Vietnam in celebration of the 25th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries (December 22).

The festival featured Korean Movie Days, a photo exhibition on the land, culture and people of the RoK and Quang Nam, a workshop on building new-style rural areas in Quang Nam and the new village movement in the RoK, a meeting with Korean investors and an exchange for students.

The RoK has the largest number of investors in Quang Nam province, with 31 companies and total capital of nearly 250 million USD, generating jobs for nearly 10,000 labourers.

Quang Nam has set up close ties with localities of the RoK over the past time. Annually, the province receives hundreds of thousands of US dollars in humanitarian and community development aid from RoK non-governmental organisations.

The RoK has been among the main source countries of tourists to Quang Nam over the past years.

The Korean Day event is expected to promote tourism in Quang Nam, which is home to two world cultural heritage sites by UNESCO - Hoi An ancient town and My Son sanctuary, together with many rich and unique tangible and intangible heritage values.


The province also boasts several potential beautiful landscapes such as excellent beaches, Cham and Tam Hai islands and the majestic Truong Son mountain range.
