Experts, businesses and individuals shared experiences of UCCN cities to help Thua Thien-Hue meet the criteria and soon join the network. 

Many said that cuisine is a feasible and suitable approach for the locality to build a creative city.

Deputy Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Phan Ngoc Tho said that Hue's cuisine had more than half of 3,000 dishes in Vietnam recorded in the Nguyen Dynasty (1802–1945)'s documents. 

The UNESCO Creative Cities Network is a flagship city program of UNESCO launched in 2004 to promote cooperation among cities which highlight culture and creativity as strategic drivers of sustainable urban development.

As of 2022, there were almost 300 cities from around 90 countries in the network.
