This year will be marked by a wide range of events, in all areas, including culture, education, cooperation in higher education and research, tourism, sports, cultural and creative industries, and especially architecture, fashion and design, and more generally all economic exchanges between France and Vietnam.
The Year of France-Vietnam is an opportunity to place special emphasis on the achievements represented by the dynamics of decentralized cooperation between the communities of the two countries, a strong presence in the territory. It will also rely on the contribution of the Vietnamese community in France.
While endeavoring to present remarkable elements of the history, heritage and traditions of France and Vietnam this year to discover each country’s ambition, the more contemporary and creative aspects on the other, and give a new impetus to trade, both in the economic sphere, in the cultural, educational, scientific and sports. “
