The goal of the project is to renovate the landscape of the garden, architectural works and reduce the desertedness in the Complex of Hue Monuments, specifically to preserve and restore Phung Tien Complex. In addition, there will be intensive technical training on the conservation and restoration for 06 craftsmen of restoration companies from Hue and HMCC who will be awarded professional certificates after the training course so as to support the restoration workforce of the province. This is the fifth project supported by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Cultural Preservation Program for Hue Imperial Monument Complex.
