From 31 Oct to 3 Nov 2019, a workshop on “Preservation of heritages in the new context” and an in-depth training on cultural heritage were held by the Department of Cultural Heritage (the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism) in Tuy Hoa city, Phu Yen province.

The workshop and training were attended by nearly 200 delegates from cultural management bodies of 25 provinces, staff of museums, world heritage sites, Dong Van Karst Plateau UGGp and Ly Son – Sa Huynh Geopark, among others.

According to the recent statistics, Vietnam has so far earned UNESCO recognition for 8 world cultural and natural heritages, 12 intangible cultural heritages. Vietnam has also recognized 105 special national monuments, 3,494 national monuments, around 10.000 province-level monuments, 301 intangible cultural monuments (of national list), 164 national treasures. The museum system continues to expand with 167 museums including 125 public and 42 non-public museums.

 In 2018, historical and cultural attractions witnessed a growth in the number of visitors, which indicates the role of cultural heritages in the development of tourism.

During the workshop, a wide range of topics was brought up for discussion, inter alia, speeding up the inventory process of intangible cultural heritages and preparing scientific documents for new intangible heritages to be added in the national list; establishing policies to honor artists; strengthening staff’s capacity, among others. Participants also proactively engaged in sharing experience in the management, preservation and promotion of cultural heritages in the attempt to analyze the current status of heritage management; update knowledge and enhance expertise in preserving and promoting heritage values.

In a sideline activity, participants had a chance to visit and explore some relics and outstanding landscapes in Phu Yen province.
