VTV.vn - An international seminar on world natural heritage and sustainable development in the new context opened in the northern province of Quang Ninh on Monday.

The event is co-organised by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism (MCST) and the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation.

Speaking at the function, MCST Deputy Minister Dang Thi Bich Lien said the seminar focuses on topics such as the strengthening of the legal framework to protect heritage sites and boost sustainable development, the cohesion of local communities, and public-private partnership at world heritage sites.

Michael Croft, UNESCO Chief Representative in Vietnam, said that the seminar serves as a forum to find sustainable solutions that both meets developmental requirements and preserves the values of the world's heritage.

Vietnam has eight UNESCO-recognised heritage sites, including five cultural, two natural, and one mixed. Over past years, the government has paid due attention to protecting and restoring global values as well as managing, safeguarding, and promoting the values of heritage sites.
