The central coastal province of Phu Yen is ready for the Vietnam Seafood Festival from March 27 to April 2, said Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ho Van Tien.
At a press briefing on March 24, Tien said the festival will include 18 events, from seafood exhibitions and aquaculture forums to workshops on fishery development and trade promotion.
A film week and displays of books on fisheries and Vietnam’s sea and islands will also be organised during the festival, he added.
Themed “Vietnamese Seafood – Integration and Development”, the event aims to honour the craft of seafood farming and fishing, especially tuna fishing, and introduce tangible and intangible cultural values of Vietnam’s coastal localities.
It will also offer chances for businesses in the seafood sector to enhance their connectivity.
