The Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts has convened a preparatory meeting for the 17th ASEAN Senior Officials’ Meeting Responsible for Culture and Arts (SOMCA), the ASEAN Cultural Heritage Digital Archive phase II (ACDA-phase II) and other parallel meetings.
The meeting took place recently through a Videoconference under the chairmanship of H.E. Ms. Pen Monimakara, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts.
The meeting aimed to review work progress and discuss ability to prepare those events for 2021-2022 as Cambodia will be the Chair of ASEAN.
In the session, all participants agreed on the initial selection of 3D image archives of the ASEAN cultural heritages and discussed needed human resources to sustain ACDA-phase II work.
They also proposed possible hosting of the 17th SOMCA in Siem Reap province either in-person and online, and the organisation of various parallel meetings.
