Vietnamese cultural activists awarded UNESCO Merit Prize (February 27, 2005)

Four Vietnamese cultural activists on Monday received the Merit Prize from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)'s Asian-Pacific division.

The awardees were Dang Van Bai, Director of the Heritage Department under the Ministry of Culture and Information; Nguyen Quoc Hung, Deputy Director of the department; Tran Dinh Thanh, an expert of the department; and Luu Tran Tieu, former Deputy Minister of Culture and Information.

Also on this occasion, the Ministry of Culture and Information presented the medal "For the Cause of Culture and Information" and certificates of merit to six Japanese experts for their valuable contributions to a project to preserve traditional houses in Vietnam.

Under the project, funded by the Japanese Government and completed in late 2003, six traditional houses in northern Bac Ninh and Nam Dinh provinces, central Thanh Hoa and Quang Nam provinces and southern Dong Nai and Tien Giang provinces were restored to their original condition.
