Joint effort to promote Vietnamese culture
Preserving and promoting national culture are always among a country’s top priorities playing an important role in fostering its economic growth, politics and society. To complete this task, a joint effort is needed.
Under the National Strategy for Cultural Development until 2030, culture must be positioned as high as economy, politics, and society. Promoting Vietnamese cultural values will motivate the country’s development in various aspects, especially in the tourism industry which reopened on March 15. After two years of hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Vietnam aims to attract 65 million local and foreign tourists to earn an estimate of 400 trillion VND which will be a leverage to revive the tourism industry.
Culture tourism is expected contribute 15 to 20% of the tourism industry’s total projected revenue of 40 billion USD by 2030, according to the National Strategy for Vietnamese cultural industries development until 2020 and a Vision to 2030.

Supports from businesses
Joining efforts to realize national strategic goals, SABECO has been working closely with the government and social organizations organizing several programs to honor and promote Vietnamese cultural values.
In May 2022, SABECO signed a three-year agreement with MoSCT to help upgrade the national sport level and promote Vietnam’s image as a must-visit destination of tourism, culture, and cuisine for both local and foreign tourists.

Since the beginning of this year, SABECO has implemented several initiatives to support and honor Vietnamese culture and tourism. In collaboration with the HCM Communist Youth Union, the company organized a Culinary Culture Program called Đêm Sài Gòn or Saigon Night in 36 cities and provinces to honor local cuisines. The company also hosted the C ASEAN, the Southeast Asian Arts & Culture event, and Thailand’s Art Exhibition CHAO 2022 exhibition to preserve Southeast Asian traditional culture and musical instruments among the young generation.
Most recently, SABECO was the main sponsor and partner of the Vietnam Culture and Tourism Festival in South Korea. The event took place from October 13 – 19 to introduce international tourists to many signature aspects of Vietnamese culture, including Bia Saigon - a brand that has been long associated with Vietnamese cuisine.
Additionally, SABECO has also demonstrated its commitments to the development of Vietnam’s sports through different activities. SABECO was the Diamond sponsor for SEA Games 31; supported the Doping Control Program at SEA Games 31; and sponsored Vietnam’s national football teams (both male and female), Bia Saigon Cup 2022 (VPL-S3) and Press Cup 2022…
