NDO – The development of literature and arts from ethnic minority groups, an indispensable part of Vietnam’s literature and arts, reflect the unity of diversity in Vietnam’s culture.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam made the statement at the fifth congress of the Literature and Arts Association of Ethnic Minority Groups for the 2014 – 2019 tenure in Hanoi on December 2.

He also reaffirmed that the Party and State pursue consistent policies on developing mountainous regions and living areas of ethnic minority groups.

He expressed his hope that the association would make further contributions to realising Party and State guidelines and policies on ethnicity, improving the spiritual life of ethnic minorities groups, and consolidating the national great unity bloc.

He urged the association to discover and nurture writers and artists from ethnic minorities while preserving and upholding cultural heritages of the groups.

The congress attracted the participation of over 500 members from 48 cities and provinces across the country.

The congress appointed a 21-member executive committee for the new term, with Nong Quoc Binh reelected as Chairman.
