During the press conference, Nguyen Thi Diem Hang, the Deputy Director of the Hanoi Institute for Socio-Economic Development Studies, shared that the scientific conference is being held by the resolutions of the Central Committee and Politburo, particularly Resolution No. 15-NQ/TW, which outlines the direction and objectives for developing Hanoi Capital until 2030, with a vision towards 2045.

“The conference aims to promote the capital's thousand-year-old history of civilization and heroism, foster collaboration, effectively leverage the capital's potential and advantages, and mobilize resources to build and develop a modern and civilized capital,” Hang said.

In this regard, Hang expected the conference to address practical issues related to cultural, civilized, and modern development in Hanoi, propose solutions to promote cultural values and resources and shape the capital's development philosophy until 2030 and vision towards 2050.

“With culture being seen as an essential driver for the development of Hanoi, the conference would also promote awareness and unity among all levels, branches, party members, and citizens of the city regarding the crucial position and role of Thang Long - Hanoi's culture,” she added.

The conference's Presidium will include leaders from the City Party Committee, Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, along with renowned experts and scientists. The one-day event will comprise two sessions, and through the discussions and ideas generated, it will contribute to identifying and clarifying the content of civilization - culture - modernity and offer suggestions for the capital's future development.

The conference would address four main topics, including the culture of Thang Long - Hanoi and Hanoi as a "Civilized – Cultured – Modern" city; the cultural resources of Thang Long – Hanoi; Hanoi as a heritage capital and creative city with development aspirations; and the conditions, tasks, and solutions required to mobilize resources for developing the "Civilized - Cultured - Modern" capital.

Another area is dedicated to displaying cultural publications of Hanoi. Notably, the History Museum would present an exhibition space featuring bronze arrows excavated from Co Loa Citadel, and a set of products simulating the magic crossbow of King An Duong Vuong.
