The acknowledgment was announced at the 7th MOWCAP General Meeting being held in Hue from May 18-21.

The ‘Royal Literature on Hue Royal Architecture” is a unique and original way to decorate architectural works and archive documents of the Nguyen dynasties which is not found anywhere else in the world.

The Phuc Giang School Woodblocks is a heritage of the Nguyen Huy family in Truong Luu village, Can Loc district, Ha Tinh province, which has been preserved by the family’s descendants for 250 years. They are the only ancient woodblocks created by a family for education preserved today in Vietnam. Vu Thi Minh Huong, Vice Chairwoman of the Memory of the World Committee for Asia and Pacific, said: “These results are attributed to the effort of the Hue Heritage Conservation Center and the Nguyen Huy clan in Ha Tinh province to preserve the heritage and prepare the dossiers. The Executive Committee of the Memory of the World Committee for Asia and Pacific had considered many dossiers. Vietnam’s nominations dossiers were highly appreciated.”

Vietnam has received recognition from the UNESCO’s Memory of the World Program for the 82 stone steles in Hanoi’s Van Mieu – Quoc Tu Giam, Nguyen Dynasty’s royal administrative documents, woodblocks of the Nguyen Dynasty, and the collection of wooden blocks carved with Buddhist sutras at Vinh Nghiem Pagoda in Bac Giang province.
