Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. Secretary-General of the Mongolian National Commission for UNESCO Ms. S.Uyanga took part in an international workshop under the theme “The role of National Commissions in World Cultural and Natural Heritages preservation towards Sustainable Development” at the invitation of the Viet Nam National Commission for UNESCO. 


Organized by UNESCO Office in Hanoi, the event was held in Ninh Bình city of Vietnam on December 5 and 6 with participation of more than 50 delegates from partnering organizations working toward the implementation of the World Heritage Convention. The workshop heard presentations on inscription and preservation experiences of natural and cultural heritages of Vietnam as well as policies and actions being carried out concerning the heritages in Mongolia and South Korea. 


Secretary-General of the Mongolian National Commission for UNESCO Ms. S.Uyanga delivered speech on ‘Contribution of the Mongolian National Commission for preservation and protection of natural and cultural heritages through enhanced education on heritage’. 


Mongolia has its heritages inscribed as natural and cultural heritages in the UNESCO World Heritage List and yet, the country has not any mixed properties inscribed in the UNESCO. With regard to this, Ms. S.Uyanga expressed her willingness to study about an adequate management for mixed heritage sites and properties and preservation of transnational heritage for effective realization of the World Heritage Convention.
