Addressing the opening ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Mexico Nguyen Hoai Duong voiced his hope that the event would help local people understand better about Vietnam and contribute to promoting solidarity and friendship between the two countries.
On display are 30 photos taken by the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) depicting the beauty of nature and daily life of Vietnamese people as well as the country’s achievements in reform and development.
Director of the municipal Department of Culture Jose Alfonso Suarez del Real y Aguilera said through these photos, Mexicans could feel a peaceful Vietnam with charming natural scenes, friendly people and unique culinary culture.
He added that Vietnam was the first nation to be selected to join the city’s initiative “Paseo de las Culturas Amigas” (A walk to friendly cultures).
Many visitors shared that the exhibition brought a completely different perspective from what they have learned about Vietnam with war and bombs.
They said this is a wonderful photo exhibition about Vietnam with rich culture and beautiful natural landscapes.
The event will run until September 30.
