(QNO) - Besides Vietnam- Japan Cultural space, a lot of cultural values of Quang Nam will be presented to international delegates in the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) 2017 in Hoi An from 19 to 21 October.

On the occasion of APEC week in Hoi An, the service of electronic cars is launched. This type of transport is encouraged in this heritage city. Especially, these means of transport are also used to take the APEC delegates to visit Hoi An ancient quarter, Rehahn’s Precious Heritage Art Gallery Museum, and Cam Thanh village.

It is estimated that there are about 500 international and domestic delegates from 21 APEC member economies, banks, and other financial and economic organizations coming to Hoi An on this occasion. They will spend a day visiting Hoi An city and experiencing cultural tourism products here.
Besides electric cars, Hoi An traditional art performances will hopefully bring APEC representatives an interesting new food for mind, including singing Bai Choi, traditional theatre opera, and water puppet. According to Mr. Vo Phung, Director of Hoi An Center for Culture and Sports, APEC Meetings are a great opportunity to promote the cultural values of Quang Nam and Vietnam, Vietnamese tourism products and trade names to the world. Especially, Hoi An silk village will be the venue for the APEC Gala dinner on October 20 with several special activities, e.g. YALY fashion show by Hoi An YALY Garment Company. In addition, delegates from 21 APEC member economies will wear Ao Dai (Vietnamese traditional dresses) when visiting Hoi An.
At the Rehahn’s Precious Heritage Art Gallery Museum, the APEC delegates will be introduced some stories of 54 ethnics in Vietnam. Moreover, Hoi An is a place of cultural convergence; therefore, it will hopefully be a highlight that can give the guests unforgettable impressions.
