via Vietnam Plus, 15 March 2021: Moving towards better management of the Thang Long World Heritage Site.
The People’s Committee of Hanoi is accelerating the unification of the management of Thang Long Imperial Citadel, one of Vietnam’s eight commitments to UNESCO.
Though Thang Long Imperial Citadel was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010, the city has yet to fulfil the commitment to unify the management of the site.
Both management organisations and scientists have expressed their hopes to unify the management of the site to better preserve it.
Thang Long Imperial Citadel covers a total area of 18,353ha and the site is under the ownership of the city of Hanoi, the Ministry of National Defence and two families who made significant contributions to the national revolutions.
