Speaking at the ceremony, CCIC Director Nguyen Trung Dung affirmed that the center would like to create a cultural space for Vietnamese people who used to study and work in the Czech Republic to recall their good old days in the European country, as well as for young people to explore the Czech culture, thereby promoting people-to-people exchange between the two countries.

Czech Deputy Ambassador to Vietnam, Lukas Musil (L) speaking at the event

The Czech cultural corner serves as a living library introducing aspects of the Czech culture to local people, as well as a venue for cultural, art, and language exchanges.

For his part, Czech Deputy Ambassador to Vietnam Lukas Musil stressed that the formation of the cultural corner has proven that Czech traditions and customs have been preserved and developed in Vietnam.

The Czech Republic will establish a Czech center in Hanoi next year. Vietnam is the third country, after the Republic of Korea and Japan, to have such a center, he added.
