An information sharing platform on intangible cultural heritages (ICH) of Asia-Pacific nations, including Vietnam, has recently been launched.

The ich Links platform, at (https://www.ichlinks.com), is an initiative of the International Information and Networking Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO (ICHCAP).

It gathers the participation of seven member states – Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, Malaysia, Vietnam, India and Fiji.

In June, the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism appointed the Vietnam Institute of Culture and Arts Studies (VICAS) as the Vietnamese member partner of the platform.

The platform helps ICH researchers and experts easily find and locate information and data by using advanced technological tools.

In addition, the content of the website can be freely used by everyone to serve the purpose of promoting intangible cultural heritage globally.
