Government to finance preserving Hue monuments

The government has decided to fund VND800 billion for a project to preserve Hue’s monuments, an official has said.


The government has decided to fund VND800 billion (USD38.4 million) for a project to preserve Hue’s monuments, an official has said.

Dr Phan Thanh Hai, Director of the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre, said that the prime minister approved the project on December 12.

As a result, around VND100 billion (USD4.8 million) will be used on conservation annually during the 2013-2020 period, he said.

Due to economic difficulties, only VND50 billion (USD2.4 million) would be allocated to next year and the remainder offset in the following years.

According to him, capital for the project would be sourced from funds for the national programme on culture for the 2013-2020 period.

More funding may be allocated to the project based on the increase in the annual state budget revenues, plus official development assistance funds.

“This is an important decision by the government to preserve and uphold the values of the former capital at Hue through until 2020. The project will benefit several monuments and remnants found within the Imperial Citadel,” Hai added.
