The annual event is organized to foster the spirit of national solidarity and to honor, preserve, and promote the cultural values of Vietnam’s 54 ethnic groups. It aims to raise public awareness about the importance of conserving and practicing culture.
This event is part of the celebration of the 93rd anniversary of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) establishment (November 18, 1930-2023) and Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day (November 23).
In his speech at the opening ceremony, Do Van Chien, the Secretary of the Party Central Committee and President of the VFF Central Committee, emphasized that solidarity is a precious tradition of Vietnam.
He highlighted the significance of the strong national solidarity, which is one of the most important resources for the Party, people, and army to overcome challenges and successfully implement the reform process towards prosperity, democracy, fairness, and civilization.
The leader called on the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to continue implementing measures, especially those outlined in the cultural development strategy towards 2030. The goal is to preserve and promote the cultural identities of ethnic groups, integrate culture into social life, and strengthen national unity.
The solidarity-culture week will include art performance festivals, programs showcasing traditional festivals and cultural rituals, exhibitions featuring traditional cuisine and costumes, and a photo exhibition.
