Thua Thien – Hue (VNA) – The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism sought to tap Industry 4.0 achievements in culture and arts from analyzing the revolution impacts on the sector at a scientific seminar in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue on June 21.

Speaking at the event, Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Nguyen Ngoc Thien said the ministry wants to listen to scientists and researchers’ opinions in the field, thereby effectively renewing the State management to boost the effective application of Industry 4.0 achievements in culture and arts.

Participants proposed roadmap to technological application between now and 2021 to build key products and services, as well as measures regarding capital, mechanisms, policies and human resources.

Nguyen Phuong Hoa from the ministry’s Department of International Cooperation said with over 20 UNESCO-recognised heritages and thousands of relic sites and folk cultural festivals, Vietnam needs to creatively and sustainably tap values of cultural heritages to gain competitive edges.

She urged the State to promptly issue a digital cultural strategy or turn it into a key mission in the Vietnam cultural development strategy in the new period.

It is also necessary to comprehensively reform education by promoting innovation, she said, adding that the State needs to refine legal regulations and strengthen the efficiency of intellectual property protection in a real-life and digital environment.

Hoa suggested building a private-public partnership mechanism to pool brainpower and financial prowess of the private sector in realising the digital cultural strategy.

The same day, the ministry held a training conference on the government’s Decree No.22/2018.ND-CP dated February 23, 2018 regulating the enforcement of the Law on Intellectual Property regarding the rights of authors and related rights.-VNA
