As part of the celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary of Viet Nam-Japan diplomatic ties, a bilateral cultural exchange programme took place at Da Nang’s Trung Vuong Theatre last Saturday.

Organised by the city’s Union of Friendship Organisations, the event drew a great deal of attention from Japanese nationals who are living and working in the city, domestic and foreign visitors, and local residents.

The event featured a wide range of activities exchanging the cultures of Viet Nam and Japan.  These included a drawing competition for primary school pupils, calligraphy, origami, and music and cuisine exchanges for school pupils and university students.

Visitors also had the opportunity to enjoy a fascinating evening of music  in the theatre. 

At the event , the drawing which had won first prize in the competition for primary school pupils was presented to the Chairman of the city’s chapter of the Japanese Enterprises’ Association, Mr Sakurai Hiroyuki.
