The Danish government will continue to cooperate with Vietnam in realising phase 2 of the project “Dialogues between cultural managers and cultural policy makers”, according to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST).

Accordingly, from now to 2015, the Danish government will provide Vietnam with about 6.5 million DKK (about more than 1 million USD) to help develop the country’s contemporary arts and enhance cultural exchange activities between the two countries.

The MCST plans to host a event themed “Vietnam’s Cultural Days in Denmark” in the third quarter of this year, which will include arts and music performances, film screening, paintings and photos exhibition with the aims of introducing culture, customs, images of country and people of Vietnam to Danish people.

In the period of 2006-2010, Denmark has implemented a national strategy for bilateral cooperation with Vietnam, with five out of seven projects proposed in the Strategy gaining positive outcomes./.
