The European Commission and Vietnamese authorities jointly organise an ASEM seminar on the theme “Preserving and promoting the diversity of cultural expressions: sharing Asian and European experiences”, which will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam on 15-16 December 2008.

The seminar aims at exchanging experiences and points of view on questions related to the diversity of cultural expressions. It is meant to be an open platform for discussions between officials, decision-makers as well as representatives of civil society active in the field of culture, from both Europe and Asia.
