People who want to discover the peoples and cultures of the northwestern region will have the chance to make their dreams come true, right in Hanoi with a programme called “the Colours of the Northwestern Region”.

The programme will be held at the Exhibition Centre for Culture and the Arts on April 26-28 to mark Vietnam ’s Ethnic Groups Cultural Day.

There will be a broad range of activities, including cultural and art exchanges, fashion shows and traditional games.

A replica of a market in the mountainous region will be re-created selling all the specialties produced in the northwestern region.

Nguyen Thi Hoa, Deputy Director of the Vietnam Exhibition Centre for Culture and the Arts said the organising board has worked with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to select the most special cultural products from the northwestern region to offer to visitors.

The programme aims to protect and promote the traditional cultures of the northwestern people, and consolidate solidarity between ethnic groups in Vietnam to boost the region’s tourism potential.

It has been co-organised by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Hanoi People’s Committee and the northwestern provinces./.
