The programme will include talks to exchange experiences to pave the way for more concrete cooperation, a tour of Thuong Tin District’s successful youth business models, as well as visits to the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, a photo exhibit on Hanoi-Guangxi tourism, a cultural and art exchange and a musical gala.
