The program will contribute to the restoration and preservation of fine traditional cultural forms and products of the Tay, Thai, Dao, Muong, Phu La, Tho, and O Du ethnic groups in localities.

The move is expected to strengthen national solidarity, especially among youths, via various activities such as folk songs, dances and cultural rituals imbued with each minority’s identity, toward enhancing the role of village elders and chiefs, respected individuals and ethnic minority groups themselves.

The ministry also asked relevant departments and local authorities to work closely with the Department of Traditional Culture to effectively carry out the project./.
