The “National Strategy for Cultural Development to 2030” provides the detailed steps towards improving Vietnamese people’s spiritual life.


The Dragon Dance Festival was organized in Hoan Kiem Pedestrian Streets before the Covid-19 pandemic.

The draft “National Strategy for Cultural Development to 2030” by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism was recently approved by Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam.

People is the centerpiece

Accordingly, Vietnamese people are placed at the center of all development activities.

The strategy aims to build and develop a comprehensive Vietnamese culture and people, in line with the trends of the times and the requirements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Recently, Vietnamese people have faced serious crises both mentally and physically such as the Covid-19 pandemic, natural disasters, and the negative sides of economic development. Therefore, building a healthy cultural environment is an essential need.

The “National Strategy for Cultural Development to 2030” aims to continuously improve the spiritual life of the people, especially the policy beneficiaries and disadvantaged people; focusing on cultural development in ethnic minority areas, gradually narrowing the gap in cultural enjoyment between urban and rural areas, and regions.

At the same time, the Strategy also perfected the market mechanism in the field of culture. Culture must be developed in parallel with the development of a socialist-oriented market economy. A number of cultural industries with potential and economic advantages will be prioritized for development. In addition, there will be mechanisms to attract and utilize talents as well as to mobilize resources for cultural development in the coming time.

More five heritages recognized by UNESCO

By 2030, Vietnam strives for 100% of administrative units at the provincial level to have all three types of cultural institutions, including cultural centers or cultural-arts centers, museums, and libraries; 100% of districts and communes have culture and sports centers.

The national cultural sector is also striving for at least 95% of special national relics and around 70% of national relics to be restored and embellished by 2030, and the country will have at least five cultural heritages most recognized by UNESCO.

The relevant authorities would ensure that at least 75% of people in the remote, border, and island areas, and 80% of communes in ethnic minority and mountainous areas can enjoy and participate in cultural activities. They would have access to the national and local radio and television broadcast.

Every year, there will be 10 to 15 quality literary and artistic criticism researches published.

In addition, the revenue of cultural industries is expected to contribute 7% of GDP.

11 tasks and solutions

In order to achieve the above goals, the Strategy has set out 11 tasks and solutions including raising awareness and promoting communication on cultural development; building a healthy cultural environment to create a driving force for economic and social development and international integration; protecting and promoting the national cultural heritage; perfecting the market mechanism in the field of culture; giving priority to the development of a number of cultural industries, among others.

In addition, the Strategy also mentions the promotion of scientific research, technology, and digital transformation in the field of culture.
