The north-central province of Thanh Hoa will pump some VND22 billion (more than US$1 million) into the restoration of the Ho Dynasty Citadel and an upgrade of tourism infrastructure at the site, a provincial official has said.

Deputy chairman of Thanh Hoa People’s Committee Vuong Van Viet said the projects would start soon and be completed by the middle of next year, when the citadel receives an official certificate marking its World Cultural Heritage status.
The 14th-century Ho Dynasty Citadel, located in Vinh Loc District, about 150km south of Ha Noi, was recognised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in June this year.
