HA NOI (VNS) — Experts from La Cambre, the Brussels-based National School of Visual Arts, will come to the HCM City University of Culture next autumn to train master's and Ph.D students in artefact preservation and restoration.

"Viet Nam has several museums with great cultural values," said Georges Dewispelere, head of La Cambre's objects conservation department.

"That's why the country needs qualified employees working in the fields of restoration and preservation."

From 2010 to 2012, the French-speaking community of Belgium sent experts to Viet Nam to teach restoration techniques to more than 30 museum employees and teachers nationwide.

Since 2001, the French-speaking community of Belgium and the Association for the Promotion of Education and Training Abroad have sponsored the co-operative effort by the Viet Nam National History Museum and the Royal Museum of Mariemont to improve museum employees' abilities. — VNS
