QUẢNG NAM — The central district of Điện Bàn has reserved 2.6ha to build the Việt Nam-Korea Cultural Exchange Centre, Vice Chairman of Điện Bàn People’s Commitee Nguyễn Xuân Hà told Việt Nam News.
Hà said the US$5 million centre - funded by the Việt Nam Veterans Association of Korea (VVAK) - will include an exhibition centre, vocational and Korean language training, a Taekwondo gym and major space for hosting annual cultural activities of South Korea and Việt Nam.
The centre, located near the historic town of Hội An and the newly-unveiled 8km Hà My Beach, aims to draw South Korean tourists and other foreign visitors.
In October, the Korean-Vietnamese Peace Foundation donated 52 items — including documents, photos, books, visual dics, postcards and the "Việt Nam Pieta" statue — to Đà Nẵng’s museum to commemorate 41 years since the end of the Việt Nam war. — VNS
