The Vietnamese Embassy and students in the Netherlands have attended the International Community Fair 2011 themed, “Feel at home in the Hague” hosted by The HagueOnline organisation.

Through many photos, handicrafts and books, the Vietnamese Embassy staff and students introduced international friends to the land and people of Vietnam as well as the country’s socio-economic development and its policies to overcome the adverse impacts of the global financial crisis.

At the fair, traditional dance performances staged by Vietnamese students received enthusiastic applause from the audience.

On the occasion, The HagueOnline, an organisation offering support to activities of overseas communities in the Hague, worked with the Vietnamese Embassy to publish 15, 000 pamphlets themed, “The Fair Magazine 2011”, which devotes one page to promote Vietnam ’s image.

With over 90 booths, the fair drew some 150 domestic and international cultural and sports organisations and about 3, 000 visitors, mainly from the Dutch cities of Amsterdam, the Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht.

Apart from Vietnam, overseas communities from Thailand, Malaysia and Ireland also came here to introduce their special cultures, sports and cuisine. (Source: VNA)
