A British weekend in Hanoi
At the festival, participants and guests learned about scholarships offered by the UK's top universities and colleges. The event showcased products and services from UK companies in the consumer, healthcare, and financial sectors. British cuisines, such as scones, tea, and fish and chips are introduced to Vietnamese guests.
After Hanoi, the festival will move to Ho Chi Minh City on September 16 and Da Nang in October.
"The UK and Vietnam are closer than ever, with relations at an all-time high and with so much potential for the years ahead," Ambassador of the UK to Vietnam Iain Frew said at a press conference on September 6. "This remarkable UK Festival in Vietnam serves as a bridge between our two nations, celebrating 50 years of enduring friendship and cooperation."
