Researchers, scholars and scientists from India and Viet Nam will do their best in clearing up the ancient relationship between the two countries via a two-day conference on the Cham Civilisation.
The event will mark the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations and the India-Viet Nam Year of Friendship 2012.

The Indian Government has decided to fund the restoration and preservation of the My Son Sanctuary in Quang Nam Province with US$3 million.

“The conference in Da Nang City is an opportunity for Vietnamese and Indian scholars, scientists and researchers to clear up the linkage between the two sides,” said Indian Ambassador Ranjit Rae.
