More scientific activities in culture will be held by Ho Chi Minh Museum and Israeli Ben Gurion Heritage Institute in 2020-22, according to an agreement that was signed during a virtual ceremony that took place both in Vietnam and Israel.
Attending the ceremony in Hanoi were the director of Ho Chi Minh Museum Vu Manh Ha, the Ambassador of Israel to Vietnam Nadav Eshcar and representatives of Vietnam’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
Director of Ho Chi Minh Museum Vu Manh Ha signs the memorandum of understanding on the scientific activity of culture between the museum and Israeli Ben Gurion Heritage Institute.
According to the agreement, Ho Chi Minh Museum and Ben Gurion Heritage Institute will co-ordinate to implement scientific and cultural projects in museum studies, exchange experience and hold exhibitions related to the life and career of President Ho Chi Minh and Israeli first Prime Minister David Ben Gurion.
In 2021, two organisations will hold an exhibition in Ben Gurion Heritage Institute in Israel and another in Ho Chi Minh Museum.
Director of Ho Chi Minh Museum Vu Manh Ha said the signing is an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between the two museums, as well as the co-operation in science and culture between Vietnam and Israel in general.
The director also said the agreement will deepen understanding about the two great leaders and the relations between the peoples of the two nations.
According to Ambassador Eshcar, the co-operation between the two museums in research, exhibition and exchange of knowledge and experience are invaluable, promoting the understanding of the public of the two countries about each other.
Attendees of the ceremony were also invited to join a virtual tour of the heritage of Prime Minister Gurion’s house in Israel conducted by the Ben Gurion Heritage Institute.
Ties between Vietnam and Israel were established and developed by President Ho Chi Minh and Israel's first Prime Minister Ben Gurion who met in Paris in 1946.
Since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1993, the co-operation between Vietnam and Israel has progressed in various fields, including culture.
