Under the agreement, Vietnam and Hungary will cooperate in three particular fields, namely culture, sports and tourism.
In the field of culture, the two sides will consider organising
cultural activities such as photograph and handicraft exhibitions, art
exchanges and film weeks.
In sports, they will
facilitate sports cooperation, training and competitions. While in
tourism, the two countries will encourage businesses to exploit each
other’s markets, organise workshops to introduce their tourism
potentials and examine convenient air routes.
relations between Vietnam and Hungary have seen fine developments
in recent years, including the “Vietnamese Culture Week in Hungary ”
in 2005. However, tourism activities between the two countries remain
limited due to geographic distance and lack of a direct air route.-VNA
