Addressing the meeting, Tong Quang Thin, Vice Chairman of the Ninh Binh People’s Committee and deputy head of the organising board, asked for close coordination among sectors and localities involved and stepping up the communications work.

It is home to 1,821 relic areas, including 81 national relic sites and a world cultural and natural heritage site./
