Hanoi (VNA) – Leaders of the fine arts associations of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia met at a friendship get-together in Hanoi on December 10 to discuss ways to enhance cooperation among the associations.

Speaking at the event, Chairman of the Vietnam Find Arts Association Tran Khanh Chuong highlighted recent effective collaboration among the three associations, especially after their 2nd meeting in 2013.

The agencies worked closely to organise practical activities, contributing to promoting friendship, cooperation and mutual understanding among the three countries, Chuong said.

Delegates from Laos and Cambodia spoke highly of support provided and experience in organisation and management shared by their Vietnamese counterpart in the recent years.

They said they hope for stronger ties among the associations in the coming time, expressing their belief that this will contribute to tightening friendship among Vietnamese, Lao and Cambodian artists and further promoting their countries’ fine arts development.

The Vietnam Fine Arts Association suggested its Lao and Cambodian counterparts join hands in organising a number of activities such as exhibitions and exchange programmes for their members.

The Vietnamese association plans to host a fine arts-related international event for artists from ASEAN member nations and those from Northeast Asia in 2016, and coordinate with the Lao association to publish the book “Vietnam-Laos Fine Arts”.
