By 2020, more rare and precious documents and items pertaining to typical traditional cultural heritages of Vietnamese ethnic minority groups will be collected and exhibited by all national museums and national cultural museums, and half of provincial museums nationwide.
The above target is set forth in the Scheme on inventory, collection, preservation, exhibition and dissemination of traditional cultural heritages of Vietnamese ethnic minority groups during 2017-20, recently approved by the Prime Minister under Decision No. 2493.

To build the capacity of cultural officials to inventory, collect, preserve, exhibit and disseminate ethnic cultural heritages, by 2020, 70 percent of employees of museums and members of management boards of relic sites, agencies and units directly engaged in these activities will be provided with professional skill training.
To achieve the above targets, five component projects will be implemented under the Scheme. The first project is to improve the skills of personnel directly engaged in the inventory, collection, preservation, exhibition and dissemination of typical traditional cultural heritages of ethnic minority groups. The second project is to inventory these heritages. The third one is for ethnic cultural heritage collection, preservation and exhibition. The fourth one is for introduction and promotion of typical traditional cultural heritages of ethnic minority groups. The last one is to develop a database on these cultural heritages.
The Scheme also requires involved museums to pay greater attention to preserving newly collected or exhibited objects.
The collected documents and items will be divided into three groups including antiques, relics and intangible heritages for the purpose of recognizing and determining their values, ensuring that they are traditional and typical of ethnic minority cultures.- (VLLF)
