NDO/VNA – A photo exhibition featuring the land and people of Vietnam is taking place at the International Media Centre in the central city of Da Nang as an activity to celebrate the APEC 2017 Economic Leaders’ Week.

Jointly organised by the APEC 2017 National Committee, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Da Nang People’s Committee, the exhibition displays 100 artistic photos which introduces Vietnam’s beautiful landscapes, economic and tourism potential, and culture as well as the life of Vietnamese people.

The event is hoped to contribute to the common success of the APEC Vietnam Year 2017 while bringing the images of Vietnam’s land and people closer to international friends and opening up new investment opportunities for the country in various fields such as economy, culture and tourism.

The APEC 2017 Economic Leaders’ Week, themed “Creating New Dymanism, Fostering A Shared Future” is scheduled for November 6-11 in Da Nang.
