HUE (VNS) — A wide range of activities were held during Viet Nam-Japan Cultural Week in central Hue City, highlighting the friendship between the two countries.
A photo exhibition featuring Japan and its people as well as the Viet Nam-Japan friendship took place at the Hue Medical and Pharmacy University (HMPU).
A gastrointestinal endoscopy centre, funded by Japan's Nagoya University, also has been opened officially at the HMPU.
The centre will not only benefit thousands of patients in the central region, but will also provide a good opportunity for the university to expand international co-operation and promote exchanges in the fields of training, research and technical transfer with Japanese partners.
During the week, the Hue Teenage Activity Centre hosted several activities to introduce Japanese culture.
According to Do Thi My Chau, deputy director of the Thua Thien-Hue Province's Department of Foreign Affairs, in recent years the area has worked together with Japanese localities to organise many socio-economic and cultural activities.
Japan has provided much support for Hue City in restoring the ancient capital, training doctors and physicians, and developing clean water projects.
In addition, Japan's ancient cities and Hue have also organised many cultural exchanges, contributing to the friendship between the two countries in general and Hue City with Japan in particular.
The Viet Nam-Japan Cultural Week was held from September 9-14. — VNA/VNS
