Vietnam has become one of the links in the worldwide network of the European Union of National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) following the establishment of EUNIC Vietnam in Hanoi on November 18.
An agreement on EUNIC Vietnam inception was signed by representatives of the British Council of the UK, the Goethe Institute of Germany, the L’Espace Centre of France, the Brussels-Wallonie delegation of Belgium and embassies of Italy, the Netherlands, and Austria.
EUNIC Vietnam President, Franck Pezza, who is Chief of the Brussels-Wallonie delegation, said EUNIC Vietnam will act as a bridge for European and Vietnamese researchers, artists and audiences through cultural and artistic events and activities.
According to EUNIC Vietnam Vice President, Almuth Meyer-Zollitsch, who also is the Goethe Institute’s Chief, apart from the organisation of cultural projects and activities of each European country, EUNIC Vietnam will play a role as coordinator and organiser for joint activities with various countries.
EUNIC Vietnam will host the European music festival in Ho Chi Minh City later this month along with the European Balling Days, European Literature Week and European Language Week.
Established in 2006, EUNIC operates beside the European Commission. With its headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, the organisation has its branches in 53 countries.
