VGP  - A photo exhibition featuring the land and people of Viet Nam is taking place at the Da Nang Museum as an activity to celebrate the APEC 2017 Economic Leaders’ Week from November 6-11, 2017.

The event, co-organised by the Da Nang city Department of Culture and Sports and the Da Nang Union of Literature and Arts Associations, runs from February 1-5. 

The exhibition displays 60 artistic photos introducing major APEC events in the year such as APEC Senior Officials’ Meetings (SOMs), the APEC Concluding Senior Officials’ Meeting (CSOM), the Viet Nam Business Summit, the APEC CEO Summit, the 29th APEC Ministerial Meeting, welcome ceremonies for APEC leaders and other sidelines activities. 

This was the second time Viet Nam had hosted the APEC Year, with the peak being the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week in Da Nang city. 

The event is hoped to contribute to the common success of the APEC Viet Nam Year 2018 while bringing the images of Viet Nam’s land and people closer to international friends and opening up new investment opportunities for the country in various fields like economy, culture and tourism.

Established in 1989, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) comprises 21 economies, including Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong (China), Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, the U.S., and Viet Nam.
