A Vietnamese delegation has attended the 18 th international bonsai and tea festival in Nitra, Slovakia.

A Vietnamese booth showcased video clips about the country’s tea drinking way, coffee production and bonsai trees and presented many beautiful pictures of the country’s landscape and people.

Addressing the event which took place from April 16-19 Vietnamese Commercial Counselor Nguyen Thanh Long briefed festival-goers on Vietnam’s tea and coffee industry and their import-export situation.

The organising board allowed the Vietnamese Embassy to Slovakia to put on a special “Vietnamese Day” on April 19 at the main stage of the festival, attracting thousands of visitors, drawn by traditional games, an ao dai fashion show and a Vietnamese cuisine show.

This was the third time the embassy participated to the annual event, which aims to bolster economic and cultural ties between nations. This year marks the 65 th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries.-VNA
