The magazine’s stall introduced signature cultural, tourism and cuisine products of Vietnam, such as conical hats, photos and paintings, and spring rolls, drawing a large number of visitors.

Vice Mayor of Augsburg City Martina Wild, who is in charge of immigration issues, thanked Vietnam for participating in the event and expressed her opinion on Vietnamese conical hats and food.

In particular, each visitor to the stall was presented with a mask which features a Vietnamese map including the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos, thus affirming the country’s sovereignty over the two archipelagos.

To celebrate the anniversary, the magazine had also joined a five-day AFA Augsburg spring fair 2020 on a site of 500 sq.m in order to popularise the country, people, tourism, culture and food of Vietnam.
