On show are handicraft products including lacquer paintings, palm-leaf conical hats, the traditional long dresses worn by Vietnamese women and films about Vietnam and its people.
When addressing the opening ceremony on May 12, the city’s Mayor, Marcelo Ebrand, said that the annual event highlights people’s socio-cultural lives, adding that it also promotes sustainable development during global integration.
During the event, the Vietnamese Embassy in Mexico will hold an exhibition of photographs, books, newspapers and films about Vietnam and its people, culture and the achievements the country has made during its renewal.
This year’s event is expected to draw over 1.5 million visitors and generate nearly 65 million USD in revenue, a large increase on last year’s figure.
