Quang Nam (VNA) - The central district of Dien Ban has reserved 2.6ha to build the Vietnam-Korea Cultural Exchange Centre, Vice Chairman of the Dien Ban People’s Commitee Nguyen Xuan Ha told Vietnam News.

Ha said the 5 million USD centre - funded by the Vietnam Veterans Association of the Republic of Korea (VVAK) - will include an exhibition centre, vocational and Korean language training, a Taekwondo gym and major space for hosting annual cultural activities of South Korea and Vietnam.

The centre, located near the historic town of Hoi An and the newly-unveiled 8km Ha My Beach, aims to draw South Korean tourists and other foreign visitors.
