Measures to preserve and uphold Quang Nam culture values were debated at a workshop held in the central province of the same name by the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism on September 20.

The event attracted hundreds of scientists and culture researchers from universities and institutes nationwide.

Speeches delivered at the event focused on clarifying many aspects of the panorama of Quang Nam culture.

Participants discussed culture values of the Quang Nam land and people, ways to promote sustainably the value of archaeological heritage, and those to uphold the role of the local community in preserving folk festivals in coastal localities in Quang Nam.

They also pointed out changes of ethnic minority communities’ traditional culture in the province.

According to Director of the department Nguyen Thanh Hong, Quang Nam is one of the localities with the most diverse cultural heritage of the country, home to four special national relics, including two world cultural, 62 national and 340 provincial ones.

The locality also boasts many beautiful landscapes, intangible cultural heritages, and long-standing traditional trade villages that need to be preserved in the integration period, he said.

The workshop introduced new perspectives and approaches, contributing to promoting the preservation of local cultural values in the coming time.
