The exhibition, entitled “Viet Nam-UK relations: From the past to the future” opened on September 30 at the Exhibition Centre of Fine Arts and Photography (29 Hang Bai Street).
The event is held jointly by the Viet Nam News Agency and the British Embassy to mark the 40th anniversary of Viet Nam-UK diplomatic relations.
100 photos in the exhibition are divided into two main parts: photos about the cooperation between Viet Nam and the UK in all fields and real images of the UK seen through the lens of Vietnamese photographers.
Visitors will have a chance to see images of the place where patriot Nguyen Ai Quoc lived in London in the early 20th century, and pictures of British people taking to the streets in demonstration against the US war in Viet Nam.
All the pictures on display feature the fine sentiment of the British people towards the Vietnamese people, affirming the friendship and solidarity as a valuable treasure to be respected and nurtured by the people of both countries.
At the opening ceremony, Lord Puttnam, the UK Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Viet Nam expressed his hope that through this week-long exhibition, the two countries will continue to develop the bilateral friendship and co-operation in the future.
