The event is an opportunity for Vietnamese to learn more about the land, natural beauty and daily life of the Cambodian people, thereby enhancing mutual understanding, friendship and cooperation between the two countries.
The Cambodian Culture Week aims to create opportunities for artists and cultural workers of the two countries to exchange experiences, preserve and develop cultural identities of both countries.
The shows will take place in Ho Chi Minh City and the provinces of Binh Duong and Soc Trang.
The Vietnamese Ministry of Culture and Information, the Cambodian Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts, and the Vietnamese embassy in Cambodia have organized both this upcoming event and last year's Viet Nam Culture Week that took place in Cambodia.
