That was the conclusion of a working session between Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Dung and a delegation from France’s Poitou- Charentes region led by Yves Debien , Deputy President of the Regional Council.

The French side said the L’homme Debout art troupe from the region will bring a play named Venus to the Festival Hue 2016 with the participation of both French and Vietnamese artists.

At the working session, the two sides also discussed how to boost bilateral economic and investment cooperation.

Earlier, the Poitou-Charentes Regional Council funded a project worth over 11 billion VND (510,000 USD) on developing eco-tourism in the central province.

The project is being implemented in Hue city and mountainous Nam Dong district, with the aim of helping the locality’s tourism sector develop sustainably, while protecting the environment and promoting local cultural heritage, especially the Hue ancient imperial relic site - a UNESCO-recognised World Cultural Heritage.

The Poitou-Charentes region also provided 500 million VND (23,000 USD) to build a Guol House, a communal house of the Co Tu ethnic minority people, in Thuong Nhat commune, Nam Dong district, which serves as accommodations for tourists to the area.
