Sharjah 24 – WAM: Vietnam marked its Expo 2020 Dubai National Day Thursday (30 December) with a cultural performance of the nation’s performing arts, including a rendition of the UNESCO-recognised song Quan ho son in Bac Ninh at Al Wasl during the official ceremony.
Ta Quang Dong, Vietnam’s Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, was welcomed by Sultan Mohammed Al Shamsi, Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation for International Development Affairs.
Ta Quang Dong said, "Expo 2020 becomes even more special in the context that the whole world is experiencing an unprecedented challenging and difficult period of time in history due to the profound and multi-dimensional impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is one of the first events where 192 participating countries gather and meet in person once again to showcase their achievements, latest advancements, connect and work together for the future. The theme of Expo 2020 Dubai reflects the reality of today's world where no single country can solve the challenges we are facing but requires the solidarity of all countries in the world.
"Vietnam wishes to promote the power of cultural values and the creativity of Vietnamese people to make practical and effective contributions to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, as well as join hands with international friends to address the challenges the humanity is facing."
