In Brief: Ministry calls to protect heritage

The government has urged the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts and all

local authorities to work together to preserve the nation's cultural

heritage as a way of boosting tourism. Thai Naraksatya, a secretary of

state at the ministry, told the Post Monday that this policy would help

to alleviate rural poverty. "Digging up ancient graveyards and temples

damages our nation's cultural heritage and the world's heritage."
