NDO – A seminar themed “Developing cultural industry in the capital for 2021 - 2025, orientations to 2030, with a vision to 2045, situation and solutions” took place in Hanoi on June 10.

Co-organised by the Hanoi Municipal Party Committee and the municipal Department of Culture and Sports, along with the Hanoi Municipal Party Committee’s Commission for Communications and Education, the seminar featured the participation of representatives of international organisations, experts, scientists, artists, and businesses operating in the field of cultural industry, handicraft association, and traditional craft villages.

The discussion focused on four issues. The first is the identification of potentials and strengths of Hanoi in the fields of cultural industry. After which, it will be necessary to assess the economic resources of cultural industries, which can contribute to the capital's GRDP growth.

The second issue relates to the areas which organisations, businesses and individuals involved in the cultural industry are interested in, along with the advantages and disadvantages of the current development process.

The next includes the initiatives to consult, suggest and propose to the city on mechanisms and policies to create conditions to promote the development of cultural industries.

And finally, the participation and contributions of organisations, businesses, individuals and people in the city's implementation of the resolution.

Speaking at the seminar, Bui Huyen Mai - Member of the Hanoi Party Committee's Standing Commission, Head of the municipal Party Committee’s Commission for Communications and Education, said that as the capital, the political and administrative centre of the country, the main centre of the country in terms of culture, science, education and economy of the country, Hanoi has always identified culture as the centre of development policy.

With the potential and advantages in developing the strength of the culture and the desire to build a new cultural face, Hanoi has developed the resolution "Developing cultural industry in the capital for 2021 - 2025, orientations to 2030, with a vision to 2045". In which, the city will focus on surveying and assessing the current situation, advantages and difficulties, and at the same time consulting experts' initiatives.

Hanoi is determined to transform resources into the soft power of culture, ensuring the strong promotion of the inheritance and development of creative culture of the thousand-year-old capital. This is also the task posed after Hanoi was officially recognised as a creative city to realise and develop cultural industries into a spearhead economic sector, with both qualitative and quantitative development, thus contributing to the overall growth of the capital, she shared.
