According to the ministry, the plan aims to evaluate the preservation, restoration and promotion of the ethnic minorities’ traditional songs, dances and music and how they contribute to developing local tourism.

It also seeks to build policies and propose solutions facilitating the preservation and promotion of the traditional arts.

The plan will be formulated based on fact-finding surveys in provinces home to a large number of ethnic minority people, such as Lao Cai, Ha Giang, Thanh Hoa, Dak Nong, and Thua Thien - Hue. It will also take into account views and opinions of concerned experts, researchers, local administrations and governmental agencies.
