Cultural week deepens Vietnam-Russia understanding
Tourism industry targets Russia
The three-day festival included a seminar on Vietnam’s tourism potential, an exchange between Vladivostok and Vietnamese tour operators, a concert and an exhibition of photographs featuring the beauty of Vietnam and its people.
The event attracted a lot of attention from Vietnamese people living in Russia as well as international friends.
Thousands of overseas Vietnamese are currently living and working in Vladivostok where the Vietnamese language is being taught at higher education institutions.
Many university graduates who studied in Vladivostok have successfully used their learnt knowledge in Vietnam, and local people are also regular travelers to the Southeast Asian country.
Vladivostok lunched a maritime route to Vietnam in the 1950s to transport food, ammunition, medicines and industrial goods to Vietnamese people during wartime.
Currently, the local administration is considering opening a Vietnamese light industry zone and allowing Vietnamese nationals to work at local garment and footwear workshops.
