 At the reception, Chairman of the Can Tho People’s Committee Vo Thanh Thong lauded the initiative of organising the cultural week in the city. He said that room for collaboration between Can Tho and Hungary remains extensive, with bilateral cultural exchange playing a key role. 

He said the local Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism; the Department of External Relations; and its Union of Friendship Associations will be tasked to coordinate in organizing the event.

In turn, the Hungarian diplomat said his country wants to promote its culture in Can Tho and in Viet Nam, adding that the country hopes its businesses and cuisine will be introduced through the partnership formed between the two nations.

As heard at the meeting, the upcoming cultural week is expected to be co-organised by Can Tho, Hungary’s Kaposvar city, and the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. It will feature the European country’s fine art paintings, films, and music; an exchange between Can Tho and Kaposvar universities; and business networking events.

In addition, the host, guest and contractor of the Can Tho Oncology Hospital reached an agreement on solutions to clearing paperwork issues for the construction of the hospital to soon begin. The Hungarian Government has provided preferential loans for the project.

Mr. Thong thanked the diplomat for his contributions to the implementation of the project. Relevant paperwork has been completed and municipal authorities are willing to facilitate the building of the hospital, he stated.

Ory Csaba said that he is pleased with the solutions, adding that he will keep track of the construction’s future progress.
