The scheme will attract the participation of leaders of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Swiss Ambassador to Vietnam Ivo Sieber, along with senior representatives from other international organisations based in Geneva.

 

Through unique art performances and impressive footage, the audience will be introduced to the friendly ties that have existed between both sides over the past 50 years, while simultaneously gaining insights into the unique culture of both countries.

According to Tran Quoc Khanh, deputy director of the Department of Cultural Affairs and UNESCO, the event offers Vietnam a chance to introduce its beautiful landscapes, especially UNESCO-recognised heritage sites, to both overseas Vietnamese community abroad and international friends.

Vietnam Day in Switzerland 2021 will take place simultaneously via an online platform at three locations, including Vietnam Television, the Embassy of Vietnam in Switzerland, and the Permanent Delegation of Vietnam in Geneva.
