During their visit to the district on June 9, the Ambassador and his spouse were briefed on the origin and history of Thanh Ha thieu lychee and other local specialties.
The Swedish special guests were later taken to see the grand lychee tree in Thuy Lam village, Thanh Son commune and visit a VietGap lychee garden in Thanh Xa commune, where they could enjoy picking ripe lychee fruits on their own.
The visit to Thanh Ha district greatly impressed ambassador Högberg and his spouse, as it helped them gain insights of the development history of a Vietnamese summer specialty - thieu lychee, as well as enjoying the sweet taste of the freshly handpicked fruits.
Ambassador Högberg extended thank to the district authorities for organizing such a memorable trip.
The district’s leaders, for their part, invited the Swedish diplomat and his spouse to attend the Thanh Ha Thieu Lychee Festival 2018./.
