Vietnam along with 142 other member countries attended the fourth session of the UNESCO General Council Convention on the Protection of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Paris on June 4 - 8.
The convention was signed by UNESCO member countries in 2003. This meeting took place under the special circumstances of UNESCO facing financial difficulties.
Participants at the meeting reviewed the last ten years of implementing the convention and discussed ways to mobilize resources for the continued implementation in the future.
Ambassador and head of Vietnam’s mission to UNESCO Duong Van Quang said Vietnam is an active member of the organization and has been recognized by UNESCO for having a large number of intangible cultural heritages.
Secretary of the Phu Tho provincial Party Committee Nguyen Doan Khanh also joined the Vietnamese delegation to introduce the Hung Kingsworship ritual and seek its recognition as a UNESCO World Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
