Addressing the opening ceremony, Duong Van Quynh, deputy head of the Department of Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition, said Vietnamese brocade and silk are favoured by international friends as they are environmentally friendly and have cultural and art values.

The exhibition is expected to help Koreans understand more about people and culture of Vietnam, thus contributing to enhancing the fruitful relations between Vietnam and the RoK.

In 2018, Vietnam welcomed 3.5 million Koreans, a rise of 44 percent year-on-year.

The exhibition will last until July 21.
