The Chief Representative of the UNESCO Office in Viet Nam, Katherine Muller Marin, has been awarded an insignia for peace and friendship in recognition of her active contributions to preserving and managing cultural heritage in Viet Nam.

Speaking at an awards presentation ceremony in Hanoi on June 18, President of the Viet Nam Union of Friendship Associations (VUFO) Vu Xuan Hong acknowledged Katherine’s efforts in promoting heritage preservation and strengthening friendship and cooperation between Viet Nam and international friends.

Over the past five years, the UNESCO Chief Representative has played an important role in protecting tangible and intangible heritage examples in Viet Nam. Her persistent efforts have helped Viet Nam’s heritage gain global recognition.

Specifically she has been instrumental in gaining worldwide recognition for Dong Van Stone Plateau (a member of the Global Network of National Geoparks), Citadel of the Ho Dynasty (World Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO), and Xoan folk singing (World Intangible Cultural Heritage).

Moreover, she has helped build a learning society in Viet Nam, encouraging the learning movement in the country.

With her love for Vietnamese people and land, she pledged further contributions to the country, which she said, has an invaluable traditional culture.
