Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Dato 'Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri saw the importance of the need to restore non -Governmental Organizations (NGOs) culture to enable the arts, culture and heritage sector to move actively despite the current challenging situation.
Since 2020, the Covid-19 epidemic has transformed tourism from the most stable growth to the most affected sector, said Nguyen Ngoc Thien, Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism. However, thanks to the government’s strong leadership, Viet Nam quickly controlled the epidemic and became a prominent international player. This is a strength, leverage for future growth and recovery in Vietnam.
Culture is a powerful force that bridges differences and brings people together, underpinning social cohesion, peace and security. Notwithstanding this unifying function, the past 20 years have witnessed a growing instrumentalization of culture for divisive purposes. This exploitation of culture has not only contributed to more protracted crises and relapses into conflict, but also the denial of human rights, including cultural rights.
“Hablemos del futuro de las Culturas” es una plataforma de participación ciudadana, elaborada por decisión del Consejo Nacional de las Culturas, las Artes y el Patrimonio, dentro del contexto de un proceso participativo previo a la reunión anual que define la hoja de ruta de esta cartera sobre políticas públicas culturales para el año, que se realizará en mayo.
