Mayor of Dijon François Rebsamen said that Vietnam’s area will certainly be an attractive and interesting destination at this year’s fair for visitors who love the country.

In addition, 16 Vietnamese artists will give six performances of traditional art forms (around 15-20 minutes each) per day during the fair.
