CẦN THƠ — An exhibition displaying contemporary artworks by Hungarian artists has recently opened in Cần Thơ City, beginning the Hungarian week in the city.
Jointly held by the People’s Committee of Cần Thơ City and the Embassy of Hungary, the event aims to reinforce the cultural exchange between the two nations and introduce the Hungarian people and country to the Vietnamese.
It is also expected to tighten the business cooperation between Vietnamese and Hungarian enterprises, enhance the mutual solidarity and promote the international cooperation in various fields.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the exhibition, Hungarian Ambassador Ory Csaba stressed that two countries will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations in 2020, which demonstrated the solidarity and profoundness in their bilateral relations.
However, the activities of cultural exchange between Việt Nam and Hungary had not yet been reinforced in recent years so Vietnamese youngsters did not have much information about Hungary, he admitted.
The ambassador therefore expected the exhibition, without any linguistic barriers, would help to showcase Hungarian culture and spirit to the Vietnamese and particularly, youngsters.
Addressing the event, Simonffy Márta, chairwoman of the Hungarian Association of Fine Arts and Technology Application, said that 70 artworks on display had various styles, reflecting the diverse inner feelings of Hungarians and bringing the peoples of the two countries together.
The exhibition of Hungarian contemporary artworks will last until November 24. — VNS
