(HBO) – The Hoa Binh Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism said the province has surveyed the Mo Muong heritage so as to assess its situation and work out orientations for preserving and bringing into play this heritage in an effective and appropriate manner. The survey, completed in March, covered all factors relevant to the heritage, from people, objects to documents.

Mo Muong artisans are one of the relevant factors covered by the survey so as to compile a dossier seeking the UNESCO recognition of the cultural heritage.


The survey is important to the compilation of a State-level scientific dossier to be submitted to UNESCO to seek the inclusion of Mo Muong in the list of the intangible cultural heritage in need of urgent safeguarding in 2025. It is also critical to improving the Muong ethnic group and nationwide people’s awareness of this heritage’s value.

Under the provincial People’s Committee’s Plan No. 220/KH-UBND, dated November 25 last year, Hoa Binh has set up a steering committee and an organising board for the dossier compilation, organised fact-finding trips and seminars on Mo Muong, held meetings to discuss the compilation, and conducted surveys of Mo Muong in some other localities, namely Son La, Thanh Hoa, Phu Tho, Dak Lak, and Hanoi./.
