Vietnam on show in Argentina

A string of events were held in Mar del Plata and Miramar cities in Buenos Aires, Argentina on November 5-6 to promote Vietnam.

Hosted by the Vietnamese Embassy in Argentina and the Argentina-Vietnam Cultural Institute (ICAV), the event attracted local students and Vietnam-loving friends in the country.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, ICAV Vice President Ezequiel Ramoneda briefed participants on Vietnam’s geographic position, history, and national liberation wars.

He also highlighted Vietnam’s national reconstruction after the country was re-unified, as well as socio-economic achievements during the country’s Doi moi (renewal) period.

ICAV President Poldi Sosa highlighted Vietnam’s history during national defence and construction, affirming that Vietnam was a source of encouragement for progressive movements in the South American nation and in Latin America.
Prof. Renee Girardi from Buenos Aires University praised the services and contributions of the late President Ho Chi Minh to Vietnam’s national liberation cause, and shared her impression of Vietnamese people, tradition and culture during her two-week trip to the country in 2014.

In the framework of the events, short videos on popular tourism sites, and consequences from wars in Vietnam were screened.

Argentine friends reminisced about peace demonstrations to support Vietnam, and campaigns on collecting medicine for Vietnamese people during the war.

Representatives from the Vietnamese Embassy in Argentina took the occasion to present books on President Ho Chi Minh to Mar del Plata University.
