Da Nang (VNA) – How the central and Central Highlands regions have changed over the past 20 years is the main focus of a photo exhibition that opened at the Da Nang Fine Arts Museum on July 12.

On display are nearly 100 photos featuring projects that have helped improve living standards of residents in difficult circumstances in the regions.

Nobuko Otsuki, chief representative of Japan’s Foundation for International Development/Relief (FIDR), which co-organised the event, said over the past two decades, her foundation has supported development projects in central and Central Highlands provinces, contributing to giving a facelift to disadvantaged areas.

Ha Thanh Van, Director of the Da Nang Fine Arts Museum, said FIDR has helped spur socio-economic development, improve living environment and develop craft villages of ethnic minority groups.

Since its inception in Da Nang in 1998, FIDR has implemented 22 development projects and provided relief aids in such areas in social and livelihood development, education-training, health care and natural disaster combat, among others.

The exhibition runs until July 15.-VNA
