Vietnam, Singapore to promote cultural co-operation (May 1, 2007)

Vietnam and Singapore will promote cultural heritage cooperation for the 2007-2012 period by increasing cultural exchanges, jointly organising exhibitions and exchanging expertise in the collection and preservation of cultural heritage.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed on April 9, by Dang Van Bai, Director of the Department of National Cultural Heritage of the Vietnamese Ministry of Culture and Information, and Michael Koh, Chief Executive Officer of the National Heritage Board of the Singaporean Ministry of Information, Communications and Arts.

Under the nine-article MoU, Singapore’s National Heritage Board will introduce Vietnamese culture at its museums to mark the 35th anniversary of the establishment of Vietnam-Singapore diplomatic ties in 2008.

Vietnam’s historical objects will be displayed at the Asian Civilisations Museum and its contemporary and modern art at the Singapore Arts Museum.

Vietnam’s heritage stamps will be exhibited at the Singapore Philatelic Museum while its films will be screened at Singapore’s Museum of Cinematography.

In July 2007, directors of Vietnamese museums will also be invited to a national seminar on Singaporean museums.

Vietnam attaches great importance to the preservation and introduction of its culture and heritage to foreign friends as well as cultural exchanges with countries worldwide, said Bai.

“Singapore has a lot to teach us about how to preserve and utilise its culture for tourism development,” he added. (VNA)
