Viet Nam culture displayed on regional website (March 22, 2005)

HA NOI — Vietnamese culture is stepping on to the world stage with the launch of the website Viet Nam Cultural Profile.

It is the first of three new online cultural guides which make up the Greater Mekong Sub Region Cultural Profile. Web-based profiles of Cambodia and Laos are also under developement and will be launched in Spring 2005.

Viet Nam Cultural Profile was initiated in 2002 by the Ministry of Culture and Information (MoCI) in co-ordination with British Visiting Arts to publish the 560-page book Nien Giam Nghe Thuat Viet Nam (Viet Nam Arts Directory).

The website provides an overview of Viet Nam, including information on geography, history, administration, population, language, society, economy, religion and education.

Viet Nam Cultural Profile, which was funded by Rockerfeller, also gives guides to many subjects, including archives, contests and prizes, ethnic minority cultures, festivals, movies, cultural policies, libraries, literature and performance and visual arts.

The English language resource will provide infromation for people who want to study Vietnamese arts.

The British Council assists in facilitating the research and the checking of information for the website.

"I know many foreign artists who want to work with Vietnamese artists. It [the website] is a useful tool for them," said Graham Sutcliffe, senior arts manager at the British Council.

The MoCI plans to set up a Vietnamese website in 2006 for Vietnamese people who work in culture, art and media related fields, said Nguyen Van Tinh, deputy-head of International Co-operation department of the MoCI.

The websites vietnam.culturalprofiles.org.uk and www.culturalprofiles.org.uk/vietnam www.culturalprofiles.org.uk/vietnam were launched on March 11. — VNS
