Fifteen years after Hue achieved its world heritage status, the ancient citadel has moved beyond the state of emergency and into a phase of sustainability, says Vibeke Jensen, UNESCOâ€™s representative in Viet Nam.
Jensen was addressing a ceremony to mark the 15th year of Hueâ€™s world heritage inscription and fifth year of the intangible heritage status awarded to nha nhac (court music), held yesterday inside the citadel where the countryâ€™s supreme power was once seated.
