A ceremony was held to celebrate the inscription of the “Imperial Records of Nguyen Dynasty” on the MOWCAP register. Vietnam is also hosting a seminar to be held in Da Lat in November on “Strengthening National Identities through UNESCO Inscribed Documentary Heritage”.
At the MOWCAP 6th General Meeting held in Guangzhou, China, in June 2014, 16 inscriptions were added to the register. This was a record number of inscriptions and demonstrates an increasing recognition for the Memory of the World Programme.
The State Records and Archives Department of Viet Nam organized the International Workshop-Seminar Sharing Experience on Participating in UNESCO’s Memory of the World Program.
The International Workshop-Seminar brought together nearly one hundred participants from the archives, libraries, museums and institutions of Viet Nam, including the custodians of documentary heritage inscribed on MOW registers.
