HỘI AN — The International Mask Arts & Culture Organisation (IMACO) and Andong City, Korea have agreed to work with the Hội An’s information and culture center to promote cultural exchanges in the coming years.
The parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Hội An on Wednesday on the occasion of the Andong City Cultural Day held in Hội An.
The two cities will host art performances, exhibitions and friendship exchanges. They will promote tourism and introduce each other’s cuisine through regular events.
The ancient town already has a history of cultural exchange with Gyeongsangbuk Province, where Andong is located.
