More efforts needed to preserve border areas’ ethnic culture

Vietnam has consistently attached great importance to preserving and promoting ethnic culture, especially in border areas, considering it an important task of national development.

Ethnic culture in border areas is unique but prone to being lost due to influence by those of neighboring countries. Hoang Thi Anh Tuyet, a Tay ethnic in Cao Bang province, said it's necessary to create a more favorable environment for young Tay people to practice and promote their traditional Then singing.

The majority of our hometown's population are ethnic people. We must protect and promote our traditional cultural values, customs, and religions, said Tuyet.
