On Oct 23rd, BR-VT province’s Department of Culture,
Sport and Tourism held the preliminary meeting of 8 years holding “Culture-Tourism Festival” program. Mr. Ho Van Nien, Vice-chairman
of Provincial People’s Committee together with representatives of local
departments and branches attended the meeting.
The “Culture-Tourism Festival”
program has been holding since the Lunar New Year of 2007. Through 8
consecutive years, the quality of this program has been increasing thanks to
local authority’s concern and direction.
Besides the musical program
introducing the local potentialities, the “Culture-Tourism Festival” program
also announces the big cultural events of year including First-Foot Ceremony at
businesses, investment fair, press festival etc. Local districts and cities
also hold many secondary activities such as Spring Flower Festival, calligraphy
competition, sport competition, fashion competition, antique exhibition,
culinary festival and folk musical programs etc.
For the better programs in the
upcoming years, delegates suggested that the organizers should choose the
suitable fixed location for the main musical show and diversify the festival to
attract tourists. Besides, the program’s propaganda must be strengthened to
draw attention of local citizens and tourists on the occasion of Lunar New
