Joint Vietnamese-RoK concert held in Bac Ninh

Published:  02:21 Friday - May 11, 2012 Vietnamese musicians along with their counterparts from the Republic of Korea (RoK) got together to put on a concert on May 9 in the northern province of Bac Ninh to mark the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

The event was jointly organised by the Association of People loving Vietnam in the RoK and its people (VESAMO), the Association of People loving the RoK in Vietnam and the provincial People’s Committee.

During the concert, many pieces of well known classical music by renowned composers were performed by the Busan orchestra along with Bac Ninh love duet songs (quan ho) by local artists. Also on the day, the Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Nhan Chien met with a delegation from VESAMO.

He talked briefly about the province’s socio-economic development situation and its policies to attract investment as well as how RoK businesses in Vietnam are performing. Chien said he hopes that VESAMO will continue to promote cooperation between Vietnam and the RoK in general and between the province and social organisations, and businesses from the RoK and the RoK’s province of Busan in particular.

The President of VESAMO Park Kwang Joo, promised to continue promoting exchanges between the two countries and the two provinces. VESAMO was first established in 2003 in Busan as an association for individuals and enterprises from the RoK who appreciate the Vietnamese people and their culture. Its main activities include supporting Vietnamese students, guest workers and Vietnamese brides in Busan. The organisation also holds regular meetings and exchanges with Vietnam.
