Speaking at the event, French Ambassador to Vietnam Olivier Brochet highlighted the significance of the project with a budget of some 600,000 EUR (667,000 USD) over a period of two years. More than 200 officials from 20 Vietnamese heritage units have benefited from the project.

He further hinted at the project's potential to pave the way for future collaborations as early as 2025.

The project consists of three main components, including developing training courses in the field of conservation and valorisation of heritage in Vietnam, enhancing the capacity of Vietnamese museum officials and three pilot projects in three locations in Vietnam, namely renovation of the visitor centre of Cuc Phuong National Park - the first national park in Vietnam in the northern province of Ninh Binh, support of the content display at the education and communication centre of Cu Lao Cham Biosphere Reserve in the central province of Quang Nam, and design and production of storytelling tools using sound called "Storytelling Box" for museums in Ho Chi Minh City./.
