Signing cultural exchange and co-operation agreements
Since becoming a member of the Convention, Viet Nam has signed 42 bilateral agreements and treaties on cultural co-operation, which have served as the foundation for the enhancement and promotion of international co-operation in the field of culture. Viet Nam currently has two Vietnamese cultural centres, in Laos and France, and is preparing to establish further cultural centres in the USA, Japan, Cambodia and the Russian Federation. For the period from now until 2020, the government of Viet Nam is also considering a plan to establish Vietnamese cultural centres in some other regions of the world.
In Viet Nam, there are currently seven operating foreign cultural centres and some other countries are in the process of negotiating plans to open cultural centres in Ha Noi, international languages and events, and enhancing understanding of international cultures in Viet Nam.
