The Prime Minister has approved a project to set up a vocational training centre for restoration and preservation of heritage sites in the central province of Quang Nam.

The initiative aims to increase management and competency over preserving cultural and relic sites. It could also increase the value of local cultural heritage spots.

The three-year project will receive support from the Italian Government’s non-refundable official development assistant fund, 1.2 million EUR from the Polytechnic University of Milan (Polimi) and 200,000 EUR from the local budget.

The project will create a training centre for officials and specialists in the area, under the Quang Nam Vocational Collage School. A laboratory on archeological architecture will also be built.

The work is also expected to increase preservation and protection of the world-acclaimed My Son Sanctuary, and generate jobs in the area.-VNA
