HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has created a new title to honour individuals devoted to preserving and promoting cultural heritage.

The People’s Artisan title is the first such State-level honour for artisans. President Nguyễn Phú Trọng signed a decision to acknowledge the devotion of 62 artisans.

Giving titles to the artisans aims to appreciate their devotion to national cultural heritage.

Many of them are at an old age, like Nguyễn Phú Đẹ, 96, from Hải Dương Province and Nguyễn Thị Vượn, 94, from Hà Nội in the field of ca trù (ceremonial singing). — VNS
