NDO – The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has recently approved a project on digitalising traditional Vietnamese festivals in the 2021-2025 period.

The project will focus on collecting basic information in order to review and evaluate the current situation of festivals in the country, thus improving the management, preservation and promotion of the value of Vietnamese festivals.

With the goal of digitalising 100% of the data from traditional festivals in Vietnam, the project is designed to contribute to the transformation of traditional data storage methods into electronic data storage and management.

The project will include surveys to collect statistics from festivals, the building of a database on festivals and a database management software on festivals, and the launch of Vietnamese festival portal, investment in technology and human resource training for participants.

Accordingly, the database management software on festivals will be able to integrate and connect with similar databases from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, and its data will be inserted into the Vietnamese festival portal to promote the cultural value of the festivals to internet users.
