Dien Bien plans to celebrate historic victory over French

The People's Committee of the northern province of Dien Bien has said it will co-operate with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to organise many cultural events this year to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Dien Bien Phu victory over the French colonialists.

One of the main programmes will be the Dien Bien Culture and Tourism Week planned to be held from March 13.

The event will feature many events showcasing local culture and see the participation of the 21 ethnic peoples living in the province. A parade with cultural tableaux will be held to promote local tourism.

The week is aimed at helping develop Dien Bien as one of three key tourism spots in the northern mountainous region. — VNS
