Foreign expats to join festival in Ho Chi Minh City
Foreign diplomats and expats in Ho Chi Minh City will participate in a festival named “Ho Chi Minh City – Our home” at 23/9 Park in District 1 from September 12 to 14, according to the municipal People’s Committee.
Deputy Director of the Department for External Affairs Le Quang Long said on September 5 that the event aims to enhance understanding between city residents and foreigners who are living and working in Ho Chi Minh City as well as strengthen the solidarity among countries. Varied activities will be held during the festival, of which the highlights would be an exhibition on the city’s external relations and display booths of the foreign community. The expats will also introduce the cuisine and folk games of their countries alongside local partners. According to the organising board, 20 foreign consulates general, organisations and communities have so far registered to take part in the festival. The organizer hopes to attract some 100,000 visitors to the event. (VNA)
