The Embassy of Morocco in Vietnam, in cooperation with the Institute for Africa and Middle East Studies (IAMES) at the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences (VASS), co-organized an international seminar entitled “Cultural Diversity for National Unity: Sharing Experiences between Vietnam and Morocco” in Hanoi on March 27.

The seminar aimed to contribute to strengthening academic research and more specifically to exchange the experiences of Morocco and Vietnam in cultural diversity for permanent inter-cultural dialogue and mutual enrichment.

It was held within in the framework of historical relations between Morocco and Vietnam and a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between IAMES and the Center for Studies in Social Sciences Research (CERSS) on March 28, 2017.

The seminar saw the attendance of senior officials, the Director General of IAMES, Dr. Le Phuoc Minh, H.E Azzeddine Farhane, Ambassador of Morocco to Vietnam, students, and renowned Moroccan and Vietnamese professors and researchers.

Dr. Minh expressed his appreciation of support coming from Morocco, in particular from Ambassador Farhane, and expects to tighten this cooperation in the future.

This seminar was followed by the launch of a Vietnamese version of “History of Anh Ma”, written by Professor Abdallah Saaf, in which he traces the remarkable experience of Mr. M’hamed Ben Aomar Lahrech during Vietnam’s war of liberation.

Morocco is distinguished by its Berber, Arabian and European cultural influences. Marrakesh’s medina, a mazelike medieval quarter, offers entertainment in its Djemaa el-Fna square and souks (marketplaces) selling ceramics, jewelry and metal lanterns. The capital Rabat’s Kasbah of the Udayas is a 12th-century royal fort overlooking water.
