The opening ceremony is expected to be held on August 9 at the May 7 Square in Dien Bien Phu City.

The exhibition is expected to display 70 photos, documents, and typical images of the capital Hanoi, foreign affairs activities, cultural exchanges between Hanoi and Dien Bien, and the capital's army and people during the resistance war against the French in 1945-1954.

The exhibition also shows the connection between the Dien Bien Phu in the air” victory in Hanoi in December 1972 (Operation Linebacker II) and the Dien Bien Phu victory on May 7, 1954 and the liberation of the capital.

In addition, a program to promote the capital's agricultural products, traditional handicraft villages, and typical OCOP products will be held at the May 7 Square in Dien Bien Phu City.

An art show entitled "Melodies of Unity" will be held on August 10 at the square with the Hanoi Youth Union presenting gifts to the Dien Bien Provincial Youth Union and providing scholarships to students in need in Dien Bien Province.

The program is organized by the Government of Hanoi to further promote and showcase the typical and unique cultural features and heritage of Hanoi as a City for Peace and a Creative City.

This will also strengthen cooperation between Hanoi and Dien Bien in promoting and utilizing the potential and advantages of culture, tourism, and economy, attracting Hanoi tourists to Dien Bien and vice versa.

According to the Hanoi People's Committee, the program aims to give the Northwest and Dien Bien ethnic minority groups a good impression of the capital's unique beauty, culture, heritage, and especially its development achievements over the past 70 years.
