The purpose of the event, organised by the Department of Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition, in co-operation with its partners, is to highlight the country’s history, culture and lifestyle through the visual arts.
Its theme is “Việt Nam - Tradition - Modern - Development”. Landscapes, urban developments, and the causes of building and protecting the country are included.
