This program was organized at  the Voice of Vietnam headquarters in Hanoi by the Vietnam-Indonesia Friendship Association and the Indonesian Embassy in Vietnam to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the strategic partnership between the two countries.

Tran Minh Hung, Chairman of the Vietnam-Indonesia Friendship Association and VOV Vice President, said, “Today's program is part of a series of cultural exchange activities to enhance understanding between the two peoples. Indonesia's Batik was recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2009. Batik is not merely an art but also a culture, containing the soul, emotions and life of the Indonesians."

Indonesian Ambassador to Vietnam Denny Abdi said he hopes that through the program, Vietnamese people will understand more about Indonesia's rich art and culture.
