Update: Mar 03, 2014
Ambassadors, their wives and representatives from more than 20 embassies and international organisations joined a spring tour of the traditional craft village of Bat Trang in Hanoi on March 1.

The trip was co-organised by the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO) and the Hanoi Union of Friendship Organizations with the aim of promoting Viet Nam’s culture to international friends and deepening mutual understanding between Vietnamese people and foreigners.

Participants visited places of interest of the ceramics village, such as an exhibition site, ancient village, ancient path, artisans’ houses and made ceramic products by themselves.

The trip ended with a cultural exchange, helping to tighten the ties of friendship between Vietnamese and international friends. El Houcine Fardani, head of the diplomatic corp. and Moroccan ambassador, expressed his sincere gratitude to VUFO and Hanoi for their warm hospitality during the trip.

He spoke highly of VUFO and Hanoi’s initiatives to organise such activities which, he believes, will contribute to further strengthening cooperation between Viet Nam and foreign countries, shaping a brighter future for Viet Nam and raising its international status.
