Vietnam has marked its Expo 2020 Dubai national day with a cultural performance from top artists, including a rendition of the UNESCO-recognised song ‘Quan ho son in Bac Ninh’ at Al Wasl during the official ceremony.
Ta Quang Dong, Vietnam deputy minister of culture, sports and tourism, was welcomed by sultan Mohammed Al Shamsi, UAE assistant minister of foreign affairs.
Ta Quang Dong said: “Expo 2020 becomes even more special in the context that the whole world is experiencing an unprecedented challenging and difficult period of time in history due to the profound and multi-dimensional impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“This is one of the first events where 192 participating countries gather and meet in person once again to showcase their achievements, latest advancements, connect and work together for the future.”
