This year marked the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and South Africa and this was one in a series of events hosted by the embassy to mark the occasion.

Opening the event, Ambassador Vu Van Dzung noted that during this 25 year milestone many activities have been held around the world to mark the 100th birthday of President Nelson Mandela and political activist Albertina Sisulu, two symbols of the struggle for freedom, equality, democracy and reconciliation.

Over the past 25 years, along with official diplomatic channels, people-to-people exchanges and cultural diplomacy have contributed to promoting the Vietnam-South Africa friendship.

The unique Vietnamese cuisine has left a lasting impression for foreign friends, said Ambassador Van Dzung.

Guests at the event  enjoyed traditional dishes of Vietnam such as spring rolls, “pho” (noodle soup) and lotus soup. They also explored the culture, tourism potential and well-known landscapes of Vietnam through publications, photos and videos.
