The mosaics, inspired by drawings by young artists and children, feature the beauty of Da Nang’s landscapes and local people’s lives.

The materials for the mosaics were transported from the pottery villages of Bat Trang in Hanoi and Thanh Ha in nearby Hoi An city.

The APEC Economic Leaders’ Week will bring together leaders and some 10,000 delegates from 21 APEC member economies.

Besides from this, many other culture-promoting activities have been launched such as APEC sculpture garden, built near the Museum of Cham Sculpture. This garden is going to feature symbols of the 21 member economies.

The sculptures displayed in this garden will be collected from each member. Additionally, this will be the location for the 21 leaders’ spouses to plant commemorative trees after visiting the Museum of Cham Sculpture. The garden is expected to become a meaningful and popular tourist attraction in the future.

In addition, a photo exhibition featuring the land and people of Vietnam is also taking place at the International Media Centre in the central city of Da Nang as an activity to celebrate the APEC 2017 Economic Leaders’ Week.

Jointly organised by the APEC 2017 National Committee, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Da Nang People’s Committee, the exhibition displays 100 artistic photos introducing Vietnam’s beautiful landscapes, economic and tourism potential, and culture as well as the life of Vietnamese people.

Roads and pavements were upgraded while the city’s streets and beaches are kept tidy and cleaned up. Sanitation and urban order have been paid due attention.
