Addressing the event held on September 30, Vietnamese Ambassador to Chile Pham Truong Giang emphasised that the traditional friendship over the past 50 years is the fruitful result of generations of leaders and people of the two countries, and expressed his delight at new steps of developments between the two countries in various fields.

He said the expansion of cultural exchanges will contribute to enhancing mutual understanding and tightening the friendship between Viet Nam and Chile.

The Ambassador highly appreciated the response and participation of Chilean artists, and thanked local agencies and organisations for their coordination in organising the painting contest about the friendship between the two countries.

Representatives of Recoleta District authority, the Institute of Culture and the Chilean artists' association spoke highly of the Embassy's initiative to launch the contest with the warm response of nearly 100 Chilean artists.

Painter Francisco Sandoval Cornejo, on behalf of the contest's winners, said the image of President Ho Chi Minh and the unyielding spirit of Vietnamese people left a deep impression on the mind of many Chileans, especially the generation born and grown up in the 1950s-1960s.
