A “Vietnam Night” has been recently held in Vienna by the Vietnamese Embassy in Austria, to present Vietnamese beautiful scenery, people and culture in order to promote bilateral trade, investment and tourism.

The event drew in more than 250 visitors, including Austrian officials and businesspeople, ambassadors of ASEAN member countries and representatives of international organisations in Vienna.

In his opening speech, Vietnamese Ambassador to Austria Nguyen Truong Giang praised the fine development of traditional friendly relations between Vietnam and Austria. He stressed the need to further promote this relationship in political, economic, trade and other areas.

The participants were given an opportunity to better understanding about Vietnam through a photo and video exhibition as well as Vietnamese traditional food and traditional art performances.

A fashion show featuring Vietnamese traditional dress, Ao dai, by a famous overseas Vietnamese designer was another highlight. (VNA)
