The Cambodian Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City organised a proramme featuring the culture of Khmer people on March 7.

During the Culture Day (Marc 3), held annually since 1999, Khmer people remember their ancestors who passed down the diverse culture for the present generation.

Currently, about 200 Cambodian students are studying in the Vietnamese southern metropolis.
