The Nguyen Dynasty was the last monarchy in Vietnam, with nearly 150 years of existence (from 1802 to 1945). The Nguyen Dynasty, especially during the reign of Emperors Gia Long and Minh Mang, left the nation with extremely rich cultural heritages with special values.

Many heritages have been honored, exploited and promoted effectively in national, regional and international levels such as national treasures of the Nguyen Dynasty, Complex of Hue Monuments, Nha Nhac (Vietnamese Court Music), Moc Ban (wooden blocks) , Chau Ban (administrative documents), and poetry in Hue imperial architecture.

At the seminar, scientists, historians and researchers acknowledged, thanked the great ancestors of the nation's history for their great contributions, and shared researches and understanding about historical values of the Nguyen Dynasty.
