A seminar on Vietnamese culture took place at the Salvador University in Buenos Aires, Argentina on June 20.

At the seminar, Chairperson Poldi Sosa from the Argentina-Vietnam Cultural Institute (ICAV) shared her experience during several Vietnam visits, stressing the country’s rich history and cultural diversity.

Vietnamese people are friendly and have impressive cuisine, she said, adding that her agency has twinned with a university in northern Quang Ninh province to step up Vietnam-Argentina cultural exchange efforts.

A representative from the Vietnam Embassy in Argentina presented major Vietnamese features, including a range of UNESCO-recognised heritages and appealing destinations.

According to Pablo Maersk Nielsen, Head of Salvador University’s history, geography and tourism faculty, the seminar enhanced his students’ knowledge about Vietnam, an active member of the Association of Southeast Asian (ASEAN).

At the event, a documentary on the Vietnam War and the aftermath of dioxin, a chemical sprayed in the country by the US during war time, was screened.-VNA
