NDO – The 2020 Vietnam Family Festival officially opened at the Vietnam Exhibition Centre for Culture and Arts in Hanoi on the evening of June 26, offering a host of activities to celebrate Vietnam Family Day (June 28).

Entitled “Preserve and promote cultural traditions and good behaviours within the family”, the three-day festival features an array of exhibitions and artistic events honouring the values of Vietnam’s family culture, including exhibitions on families in the cultural traditions of Vietnam’s ethnic groups and the role of women and mothers, alongside a book exhibition that aims to promote reading culture in building cohesion, love and sharing between family members.

As part of the festival, a painting contest is being held under the theme “My family joins hands to push back COVID-19”, in addition to an exchange programme with popular Vietnamese artists on the topic of family.

The festival sees the participation of delegations from Hanoi, Hai Phong city, and the provinces of Thai Binh, Binh Thuan, Lam Dong and Dak Lak, who will introduce their localities’ achievements in both family and women’s work, child protection and care, poverty reduction, economic development, domestic violence prevention and control, family emulation movements, and the operations of family clubs.

The Prime Minister chose June 28 as the annual Vietnam Family Day and June as the national action month on domestic violence prevention and control. This is an opportunity for each person, family, agency, mass organisation and locality to uphold their responsibility and attention to family building, creating strong changes in the development of each family and creating favourable conditions for the Vietnamese family to truly be the home of each person and a healthy cell of society.
