Moscow (VNA) – Vietnamese students from 15 universities in Moscow, Russia, gathered at the Moscow Civil Engineering Institute (MISI) on December 6 to introduce and promote Vietnamese culture to international friends.

The idea of organising the event was initiated by Minister of Education and Training Phung Xuan Nha in September 2018 during his visit to the university.

Rector of the university Andrey Volkov welcomed the festival and said the MISI has trained thousands of Vietnamese students, who make up the largest proportion of international students at the university.

A photograph exhibition on Vietnamese landscapes and people was held as part of the event.

Foreign friends also had an opportunity to taste Vietnamese foods and participate in traditional games.

Chairman of Yaroslav district Sergey Kerzhakov shared that he has never been to Vietnam, but that through these activities he has developed a taste for Vietnamese foods and hopes to visit the Southeast Asian country in the near future.–VNA
