According to Songrit, Vietnam’s beautiful and rich culture is reflected in beliefs, lifestyles, and production methods, and the richness of regional customs, traditions, and art forms.

Vietnam boasts dozens of cultural features recognised by UNESCO as the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

The researcher also shared Thailand's experience in protecting and promoting cultural values, saying that his country has attached cultural promotion to tourism promotion campaigns.

Songrit Pongern believed that cultural diversity is an important factor for Vietnam and Thailand to further promote their cooperation in many ways, thus strengthening cultural understanding among ASEAN member countries.

If Vietnam and Thailand boost their close cultural cooperation right now, the two Southeast Asian countries will surely witness a bright future in their increasingly close bilateral relations, the Thai researcher said./.
