Photos of Vietnamese traditional trade villages displayed in Mozambique

Pretoria, March 24 (VNA) – A photo exhibition on Vietnamese traditional trade villages opened Maputo, Mozambique, on March 23.

On the display, which runs through March 28, are 20 photos taken by journalist and photographer Le Bich. They feature lively images of traditional handicraft villages in Vietnam’s northern mountainous and delta provinces.

At the opening ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Mozambique Nguyen Van Trung briefed the formation and development of Vietnamese trade villages and theirs economic, trade and tourism values.

The exhibition received a warm response from visitors, including foreign diplomats, representatives of international organisations in Maputo, Mozambican officials, locals and Vietnamese expatriates.

Mozambican students were particularly interested in the ways the handicrafts were imparted to young generations, thus contributing to preserving and developing traditional skills and techniques as well as protecting values of village cultures.

After the event in Maputo, the exhibition will be opened at public places for Mozambicans to visit and get to know more about the land and people of Vietnam.
