The conference in Hanoi will review the outcomes of the cultural and human development in Vietnam over 35 years since the “Doi moi” (Renewal) period began, based on which culture-related orientations and focal tasks for 2021 - 2026 with a vision to 2045 will be identified.

Hung told the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) that 2021 is the 75th year since the first National Culture Conference was held on November 24, 1946. Therefore, this year’s event holds historic significance, which is upholding the spirit of the first conference chaired by then President Ho Chi Minh and inspiring the entire people’s aspiration for fast and sustainable national development.

The National Culture Conference 2021 is a step to implement the culture-related content in the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress. It also illustrates the Party, Government, and National Assembly’s great attention to culture, he noted.

The conference will take place at Dien Hong Hall of the National Assembly’s headquarters in Hanoi with the presence of nearly 600 delegates, including Party and State leaders, officials, artists, and representatives of socio-political organizations. It will also be connected with 63 provinces and cities nationwide via videoconference.

The minister said the event will re-systematize the Party’s viewpoints and President Ho Chi Minh’s thought about culture, base on the Party’s guidelines to gain an insight into culture-related achievements as well as shortcomings over 35 years of reform, and specify orientations and tasks for the time ahead so as to develop the culture and people of Vietnam and inspire the aspiration for a powerful nation.

The conference is expected to help the entire Party, people, and military have a better and more comprehensive understanding of the Party’s guidelines and viewpoints on culture to practice culture properly and build an advanced culture deeply imbued with national identity, according to Hung.
