Photo exhibit in Czech highlights Vietnam’s marine sovereignty

Some 100 enlarged photos capturing the beauty of Vietnam, a country of 3,000 km coastline and 3,000 islands, have been on display at Republic Square in Prague since Wednesday.

Themed Vietnam: Country and people seen from sea and islands, the 3-day exhibit celebrates Vietnamese fishermen and Vietnam's marine economic development. Vietnamese Ambassador to the Czech Republic Ho Minh Tuan said he hopes the exhibit will boost Vietnam-Czech relations and mutual understanding. Czech's Deputy Minister of Cultural Heritage Anna Matouskova spoke highly of the event: All the photos are beautiful. I'm glad that they can be seen by the people of Prague and people from other provinces. We hope more exhibits like this will be held.

Vietnam's Ministry of Information and Communications will send all the exhibited photos and artifacts to the Embassy of Vietnam in Prague to be displayed at upcoming cultural events, including an exhibit in France in October.
