As a meaningful and humanitarian event, the poem declaration themed on “Lantern Festival Poem” had caught the interests of VLU’s Board of Trustees, Administrators, faculties, and staff.

Dr. Nguyen Cao Tri – Chairman of the University’s Council confirmed the positive effects of the poems for thousands of years: “We do think that poem and other forms of art are invaluable and scarce resources in Vietnam. Especially in a digital era like today, the development of poems became more and more limited. The poem heritages are so crucial to an educational organization like VLG. No matter how AI can develop, there are no ways it can alter the poem and other forms of art. Therefore, these major cultural heritages must be valued and spread to the young generations.”
