The Lao Food Festival has been held annually since 2006 to promote Lao traditional cuisine and food. However, the event features less exhibiting booths than last year due to prevention of the COVID-19 pandemic and we urge the participants to follow the prevention procedures of the COVID-19 rules.
At this event, the Vietnam Embassy in Laos displayed the country's typical souvenirs and culinary products such as lacquerware, brocade bags, fried rolls, spring rolls, green bean cake, peanut candy, ... Vietnamese cuisine was enjoyed and loved by many guests.
Vietnam's participation in the festival contributes to supporting Laos to promote local culture, organic food consumption, and Lao women's business in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic that has profound impact on aspects of the socio-economic life of Laos.
