Seoul artists are taking in a range of activities in Ha Noi to mark the 20th anniversary of bilateral ties between the capital city and Seoul of the Republic of Korea (RoK). 
The “Seoul Days in Ha Noi” programme, opened in the heart of Ha Noi on the night of October 28, brings special cultural identities as well as the land and people of Seoul closer to Hanoians.

Through art performances and a photo exhibition, it looks to increase mutual understanding and friendship between the two capital cities’ residents while strengthening the relationship between Viet Nam and the RoK. 

Addressing the opening ceremony, Vice Chairman of the Ha Noi People’s Committee Le Hong Son highlighted the valuable support of the Korean Government and people to the development of Ha Noi and Viet Nam at large. 

Ha Noi always attaches importance to further developing its friendship and cooperation with Seoul, looking to lift it to a new height, he stated. 

Later on October 28, a delegation of Seoul authorities led by First Vice Mayor Liu Gyoung Gee had a working session with representatives of the People’s Council and the People’s Committee of Ha Noi. 

Liu said Ha Noi and Seoul share many similarities and the two cities can learn from each other’s experience in sustainable development. 

The programme lasts until October 29. 

Viet Nam and the RoK elevated their bilateral relationship to a strategic partnership in 2009. The RoK is one of Viet Nam’s leading partners in terms of foreign direct investment (FDI), official development assistance (ODA), trade, education-training, culture and social affairs.
