Ambassador Simona-Mirela Miculescu, Permanent Representative of Romania to UNESCO, recalled her memories when accompanying the Romanian President to visit Vietnam 20 years ago. She showed her impression at the Vietnamese people’s hospitality.

Within the event’s framework, an exhibition was held to introduce UNESCO-recognised cultural heritages. Participants also enjoyed special dishes of Vietnam.

Currently, Vietnam is serving as a member of the UNESCO Inter-Governmental Committee for Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, and vice chair of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee of the 2005 Convention for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.

The country is racing for a seat at the UNESCO World Heritage Committee for the 2023-2027 period, to which members will be elected in November 2023.

According to Ambassador Van, with Vietnam's active and effective contributions to multilateral forums at UNESCO, the country has gained confidence from member countries in its contribution and governance capacity in preserving and promoting the values of cultural heritage. UNNESCO member states also spoke highly of Vietnam’s policies and commitments to turn heritages into assets, potential into resources, and culture into endogenous strength for sustainable and inclusive socio-economic development, contributing to the joint efforts of UNESCO and the world in preserving heritage.
