Hanoi has a long history of culture and is honored by UNESCO as City of Peace and Creative City for the convergence and spread of values of the nation. In particular, with the history of over 1,000 years of establishment and development, Hanoi has its own advantage of a huge invaluable cultural heritage, where the cultural traits from every regions of Vietnamconverge.

Nurturing human values
Human living culture and the city sights are two important keys of the development strategy of "Creative City" of Hanoi, according to Assoc.Prof. Dr. Ta Ngoc Tan. It should continue developing the beauty of Hanoian culture and the construction of cultural and architectural works together with the preservation of of historical vestiges.
In addition, all the heritage and cultural and artistic works of Hanoi should also be nurtured and developed to shape the human personality of those who live and work in Hanoi.
Creating favourable conditions for innovative industry development
Hanoi should also have policies to raise awareness and facilitate the creative industry development, according to Assoc. PhD. Bui Hoai Son, Director of the Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Arts. There is a need for a management system to organize events to promote it.
In addition, it is also necessary to build creative space for an environment to connect creative talents and for them to put their ideas into practice. This will bring the impact on startups and create conditions to promote socio-economic development in the capital. Currently, Hanoi has about 190 creative hubs.
