NDO/VNA - Vietnam and China should continue to jointly carry out the already signed cultural cooperation agreement and other cooperation deals between cultural agencies of the two nations, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam has said.

He made the statement while holding a reception for Chinese Minister of Culture Luo Shugang in Hanoi on November 11.

Luo’s visit to Vietnam will make significant contributions in elevating the bilateral cultural cooperation to new heights, Dam noted, highlighting that cultural exchanges have been enlarged in scale, numbers, types and contents, which are important to bolster collaboration ties between the two countries.

For his part, Luo said that his ministry would work and ink a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in the culture industry with the Vietnamese Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

In the occasion of President Xi Jinping’s State visit to Vietnam, the two culture ministries will organise a photo exhibition entitled “China through the eyes of Vietnamese photographers” and inaugurate a Chinese cultural centre in Vietnam.
