Many visitors expressed their wish to visit Vietnam some day to explore the country’s land, people and culture for themselves when visiting its booth at a recent ASEAN Plus bazaar in Caracas, Venezuela.

Vietnam joined Indonesia and Malaysia, members of the ASEAN Committee in Caracas (ACC), together with India , the Republic of Korea and Japan at this event.

Opening the bazaar, Vietnamese Ambassador to Venezuela Ngo Tien Dung said that the fair aimed to boost cultural exchanges and intensify mutual understanding, friendship and cooperation among the countries’ people.

The organising board was set to donate a part of the proceeds to needy individuals and organisations, he said, considering the event’s success as a good example for similar activities in the years to come.

Director General of International Relations of the Venezuelan Culture Ministry Katiuska Rodriguez valued the ACC’s initiative to hold the bazaar to strengthen the countries’ linkage.

She affirmed the Culture Ministry’s support for exchanges of activities, and cultural, arts and tourism cooperation to bolster multifaceted ties between Venezuela and Asian countries, including ASEAN members.-VNA
