Union Minister for Religious Affairs and Culture Thura U Aung Ko attended and addressed the second coordination meeting of the central committee to preserve and develop Myanmar Intangible Cultural Heritages held at Lawkanat Hall in the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture, Nay Pyi Taw, yesterday morning.
At the meeting, the central committee chairman said the country had thousands of tangible cultural heritages as well as many Intangible Cultural Heritages (ICHs). If our national ICHs are not recognized, it will be adopted or transformed and taken away by neighboring countries. The work of exposing and preserving ICHs requires coordination and sharing of information and meeting twice a year.
Groups formed need to coordinate to systematically collect all ICHs in the respective state and region and necessary technical support will be provided by the ministry. Keeping and collecting a complete record of ICHs within our boundary will ease and hasten the implementation of the work processes to preserve and develop Myanmar ICHs, said the Union Minister.
Next, ICH Central Committee secretary Department of Archaeology and National Museum Director General explained about the status of implementing decisions made at the first meeting, future work processes, status of collecting ICHs state and region wise, status of drawing up national ICH law, future work processes and Operational Directive of UNESCO.
Afterwards, state and region ministers in attendance discussed about state/region wise ICH preservation and development work, future work and requirements.—Myanmar News Agency
