An exhibition themed “Vietnam-Philippines: Colour of Culture” opened at the Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum in Hanoi on December 8, displaying a range of photographs and items to introduce the traditional culture of both countries to viewers.

The event, jointly organised by the Vietnamese Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, and the Embassy of the Philippines in Vietnam, aims to celebrate 45 years since the founding of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ta Quang Dong noted that the function will feature the landscape and daily lives of local people from both countries, and at the same time help the public to gain a greater insight into the unique culture of each country.

The exhibition will help contribute to promoting the strategic partnership between Vietnam and the Philippines in the fields of politics, economy, culture, and tourism, he said.

On display are a range of textile products, brocade fabrics, and national costumes of both Vietnam and the Philippines.

The event will also showcase a wide variety of photos on global cultural heritage sites and natural wonders recognised by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The exhibition is scheduled to last through to December 13.
