In addition, visitors to Vietnam’s booths were introduced to the country’s history, culture and socio-economic development achievements as well as Vietnam – Turkey diplomatic relations.

Friends from other ASEAN countries were also interested in Vietnamese food, notably ‘pho bo’ (noodle with beef), ‘che dau xanh’ (sweet green bean soup) and ‘che bi ngo’ (sweet pumpkin soup).
