On Jan, 22nd the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism held on a ceremony in Phu Dong commune, Gia Lam district of Hanoi to receive the certificate of recognition as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO. Vietnam’s Giong festival was officially honoured at a meeting of its Inter-Governmental Committee in Nairobi, Kenya, on November 16, 2010 and the Hanoi’s third heritage was honour presented by the UNESCO in 2010.
              At the ceremony, the plan to preserve and develop the value of the Giong festival was announced and it has become a national action one. By the way Katherine Muller-Marin, the UNESCO Chief Representative in Hanoi emphasized that the Giong festival has been deeply impressed in the life of residents in the Red river delta as a part of their characteristics, passing from generations to generations. The recognition of the festival as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity is expected to accelerate humans’ creativeness and dialogues between cultures.

The first program of the ceremony was an open air with an incense offering to Saint Giong, then were the performances of ceremonies of the festival. The festival meets all qualifications for an intangible cultural heritage of humanity as it has been conserved by the community as part of the national cultural identity, handed down from generations to generations, holds creativeness of humanity and represents aspiration for prosperity by every family and peace for the nation and the world.
