Speaking at a video conference in Hanoi, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City on January 11, Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Nguyen Ngoc Thien said the sector will continue to organize more cultural events at grassroots level, build a healthy cultural environment and improve the operation of the network of cultural establishments.

Last year, Bai Choi singing, a folk music genre practiced in Vietnam’s central region, was added to the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, while Xoan singing of the northern Phu Tho province was removed from UNESCO’s List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding and added to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, raising the total number of Vietnamese heritage elements to 26.
