In making the announcement, Deputy Minister Vuong Duy Bien of the MoCST said he highly appreciated all of the hard work and effort put forth by ministry staff in preparing for the event.

“The art of lacquer and brocatelle is a strength of Viet Nam”, said Deputy Minister Bien, “therefore, the exhibition is a great opportunity to display and introduce Vietnamese handicrafts to the world.”

The exhibit will feature traditional lacquer and brocade products, Ao Dai, wedding costumes of Red Dao ethnic minority people, and traditional costumes of Mong, E Do, Lo Lo ethnic minority people.
