Xem anh phong to
The first ever Haiti Cultural Week commenced in Ha Noi on January 12, themed “Haiti – Live the Experience”.

The opening ceremony showed videos introducing Haiti’s tourism and gastronomy, followed by an exhibition featuring the traditional costumes and embroideries of the Caribbean country.

Visitors were also treated to Haitian food, including griot (fried pork), acra (malanga and salted fish), beef patties, and fried plantains.

The week-long event aims to highlight the beauty of Haiti’s culture to potential visitors and enhance the traditional friendship and political-economic cooperation between Viet Nam and Haiti.

Haitian Ambassador to Viet Nam, Jean Lesly Benoit, said he hopes the cultural week will open the door to similar annual events promoting culture and tourism collaboration between the two countries.

The programme is being sponsored by the Embassy of the Republic of Haiti, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, and the Viettel Telecom Group, in celebration of Haiti’s National Day (January 1) and in commemoration of the 2010 earthquake’s devastation.

Viet Nam and Haiti established diplomatic ties in 1997, since which the two countries have become partners in the fields of economics, trade, investment, telecommunication, and rice exports.
