At the opening, Cuban Ambassador Orlando Hernandez Guillen extolled the values of the work, performed by professors and students from the University of Fine Arts of the largest Vietnamese city on the wall of the Consulate General of Cuba there.

The diplomat stressed that the facility, the first of its kind in Vietnam, was inaugurated a few hours before the 127th anniversary of the fall in combat of Jose Marti and the 132nd anniversary of the birth of Ho Chi Minh, the architects of the independence of the two countries.

Among other motifs, the mural reproduces the national flowers of Vietnam and Cuba (the lotus and the butterfly), very similar landscapes (Ha Long Bay and Viñales Valley), and architectural pieces such as the One Pillar Pagoda and the Revolution Square.

Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Vo Van Hoan said he hoped this would be the beginning of more cooperation activities, not only in the fields of culture and politics, but also in health, economy and education.

This work, he said, will help our citizens, especially young people, to know more about the island and the friendship between Vietnam and Cuba.

The inauguration was attended by other officials from Ho Chi Minh City, Cuban Consul General Ariadne Feo and members of the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association and the Union of Friendship Organizations in the city.
