Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism Nguyen Van Hung stressed that the programme will be implemented nationwide and in some countries that have long-term cultural relationships and interactions with Vietnam, where a large number of Vietnamese people live, work, and study.

The three-phase programme will focus on activities in the fields of culture and arts, especially cultural heritage, grassroots culture, performing arts, fine arts, photography, and exhibitions.

It aims to create a strong and comprehensive transformation in cultural development and to perfect and standardise the ethics, identity, and values of Vietnamese individuals and families; and improve the spiritual life and the ability of people to access and enjoy culture, addressing disparities in cultural enjoyment between regions, social classes, and genders.

The programme is expected to contribute to preserving and upholding the value of the nation's unique cultural heritage; promoting socio-economic development; and enhancing the country's position in the international arena through promoting "soft power” of the Vietnamese culture, international cultural integration, and absorbing the quintessence of human culture.

Chairman of the National Assembly (NA) Committee for Culture and Education Nguyen Dac Vinh stressed that the programme will contribute to enhancing investment resources, meeting the urgent requirements for comprehensive human development and building an advanced culture imbued with national identity, thus ensuring that culture truly becomes a solid spiritual foundation of society, an internal strength, and a motivation for the national development and defence.
Regarding mechanisms and solutions for implementing the programme, the committee agreed with groups of solutions proposed by the Government. It suggested that it is necessary to specify the tasks, roadmap, and implementation progress for institutional improvement solutions, further clarify measures to mobilise resources, and clearly define certain priorities and tasks to attract social resources./.
