Vietnam elected to World Heritage Committee

Published on : Monday, November 25, 2013

Hoi-ANThe General Assembly of the States Parties to the World Heritage Convention elected Vietnam as one of its 21-member board in Paris on November 19.

 

This is the first time Vietnam has been elected to this committee over the past 26 years.

 

Dang Van Bai, a member of the Vietnam National Cultural Heritage Council, said this is a great honour of Vietnam to have a seat on the committee, as the World Heritage Committee is one of UNESCO’s key bodies entitled to recognise cultural and natural heritage examples in the world.

 

Vietnam joined the Convention in 1987. It has so far had seven properties inscribed on the World Heritage List, including the Complex of Hue Monuments (1993), Ha Long Bay (1994), Hoi An Ancient Town (1999), My Son Sanctuary (1999), Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park (2003), Hanoi’s Thang Long Royal Citadel (2010), and Citadel of the Ho Dynasty (2011).
