Vietnamese, Argentinean localities boost tourism ties
Update: Jun 03, 2014
Argentina’s Puerto Iguazú city wishes to be twinned with Ha Long in the northern province of Quang Ninh, in order to fully tap the tourism potential of the two localities, which between them own two of the seven new wonders of the world.

The statement was made by Juan José Raynoldi, Secretary of the Puerto Iguazú municipal Government, at his meeting with Vietnamese Ambassador Nguyen Dinh Thao on June 1.

He added that his city will send a proposal to this effect to the authorities of Ha Long city.

Puerto Iguazú city owns Iguazu Falls, which is partially located in Brazil’s territory. The fall complex was recognised as a world natural heritage site by UNESCO in 1984. Meanwhile, the organisation gave the recognition to Ha Long Bay in 1994.

Earlier on May 29-31, Ambassador Thao visited Argentina’s Posadas city, where he attended the opening ceremony of a photo exhibition on Viet Nam’s land, people and traditional costumes, and met representatives of local businesses.

On this occasion, Posadas city also told the diplomat of the city’s decision to name a road in the locality after Viet Nam.
