The Culture and Fine Arts Ministry says there are still challenges the ministry has to address in order to protect the Kingdom’s culture and heritage sites, despite the work it managed to complete last year.

Ministry spokesman Thai Norak Sathya yesterday during an annual meeting said the ministry worked hard to protect the Kingdom’s culture and heritage sites, adding that it managed to complete 608 out of 636 tasks in 2018.

Mr Norak Sathya said despite this achievement, there are still challenges yet to be addressed, such as encroachment at heritage sites and illegal logging.
