Vietnam and Bangladesh (two representatives of the Asia-Pacific region) have just been elected to the Intergovernmental Committee of the Convention for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (Convention 2005) for the term 2021-2025.

The UNESCO Convention for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions was adopted on 20 October 2005. According to UNESCO, 75% of conflicts in the world are related to culture.

Therefore, narrowing the cultural gap is an urgent task for safety, peace and development. Cultural diversity is a powerful driver of development, not only related to economic growth, but also to a more complete life intellectually, emotionally, morally and spiritually.

The 2005 Convention was drafted and put into practice with the aim of protecting and promoting diversity in cultural expressions as globalization expands.

In that context, instead of existing and maintaining naturally, or may be affected by other fields, cultural activities and cultural products need legal grounds to be protected and developed.

Vietnam is one of the countries making efforts to participate in the drafting and early ratification process of the Convention. Especially, after ratifying the Convention, Vietnam was elected and successfully assumed the role of Vice Chairman of the Intergovernmental Committee and Vice President of the General Assembly of the UNESCO Convention for the 2011-2015 term.

Vietnam is also assessed as a responsible member of UNESCO and has made practical contributions to the organization's work.

According to information from the UNESCO Affairs Department (Ministry of Foreign Affairs), the Committee will meet annually to ensure the appropriate implementation of the Convention in an ever-evolving world.

Currently, UNESCO member countries believe that Vietnam will continue to make outstanding contributions to the joint efforts of the international community in protecting and promoting the diversity of cultural expressions.
