Press’s role in tangible cultural heritage preservation highlighted

NDO/VNA – Researchers, scientists, managers and journalists stressed the press’s role in preserving and upholding tangible cultural heritages in Hanoi at a workshop on June 11.


They also assessed the status of the heritages in terms of protection and promotion, and proposed a host of solutions to preserve and carry forward their values.

Some suggested identifying responsibilities of management agencies at different levels for the work while others underscored the need to issue legal documents to protect countryside landscapes and culture.

Hanoi has nearly 5,850 relic sites, including one world heritage site, 11 special national, 1,167 national and 1,179 city-level relic sites.

Despite the city’s efforts to protect the tangible culture and historical sites, there have still been limitations hindering the work such as loose coordination between heritage managers and users, and poor investment in upgrading and restoring relic sites.
