With nearly 70 booths of about 50 exhibiting entities, it aims to introduce daily life activities through market days of ethnic groups in Dien Bien province and cultural values of locals in the northern mountainous region in general.
The programme, running until March 18, also offers chances for localities in the province to promote their potential and typical farm produce and handicrafts, as well as connect with travel companies to develop tourism programmes to Dien Bien.
At the event, visitors could enjoy local dishes, art programmes and folk games arranged by local residents.
To facilitate tourists, the provincial tourism sector has instructed agencies to ensure security and order, along with traffic and hygiene. Furthermore, free wifi services are provided at the programme.
