At the seminar

The seminar aims to discover the memories between the two countries and preserve these memories over the past century. At the seminar, delegates discussed the preservation of the heritages of mutual memories and the potential cooperation between the two nations in the future.

Speaking at the event, Dang Thanh Tung, Director of the State Records Management and Archives Department of Vietnam, said that over the past years, the Department and the National Archives of France had organized many cooperation activities to promote the heritages' archives of the two countries under cooperation agreements of the two agencies signed in 2009 and 2016. The two agencies will continue to help the peoples of the two countries learn more about the establishment and development of each country and the Vietnam-France cooperation in the coming time, he added.

A photographic exhibition, themed "Highlights of French culture from the archives", will be also held on December 7 at National Archives Center No.1, and will showcase more than 150 documents, photos and historical artifacts.
