Taking place until January 31, the “Floribus - Colombia” exhibition aims to give visitors an insight into the nation, people and culture of Colombia.
This is a chance for Hoi An and Quang Nam in general to enhance cultural exchange and mutual understanding with Colombian localities, thus further promoting the friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and Colombia.
Addressing the opening ceremony, Colombian Ambassador to Vietnam Miguel Rodriguez said that Colombia is one of the countries with the highest biodiversity in the world thanks to its rich flora and fauna species.
The country has developed its flower industry with more than 7,000 hectares of flower farms with about 1,500 varieties.
Colombia has supplied flowers to 89 countries in the world, becoming the second largest exporter of flowers in the world and the leading provider of carnation.
