The performance of two Cambodian songs--“Ocpo Sato” (Warm welcome) and “Oxvai Chan Ti”—brought pleasure to Cambodian audiences. The successful culture week will leave a strong impression on the neighboring country.
“We, Viet Nam’s government officials who are taking charge of information and culture, always highly appreciate consolidating and strengthening cooperative art, culture and information activities to promote the knowledge and friendship between two countries’ peoples,” said, Mr. Le Tien Tho, Viet Nam’s Deputy Minister of Culture and Information.
The opening ceremony was held at Chak Tumuk Meeting Hall with the attendance of Ms. Chumteav Men SamOn—Senior Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Inspection—and Prince Sisovath Panara Sereyvuth—Minister of Culture and Fine Arts—as well as delegates of Royal Government of Cambodia.
