The event was attended by officials and staffs from ASEAN member states’ embassies, officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, authorities of Pretoria and Johannesburg and local people.

Along with promoting political, economic and trade relations between Vietnam and South Africa, it is necessary to popularise Vietnam’s culture and tourism so South African people can better understand the Southeast Asian country, said Vietnamese Ambassador to South Africa Vu Van Dung.

The event aroused the interest of South African friends, Ambassador Dung stressed, saying he will promote more cultural activities in the future.
