Vietnam plans to spend more than US$62,000 to restore an ancient citadel in the central region.


A report on news website VnExpress on Wednesday said the restoration aims to make the Imperial City of Hue in Thua Thien-Hue Province match its recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage in 1993.


The work will focus on around 10 kilometers of the wall of the citadel, relocating nearly 1,000 people living in near the north side of the construction.


The project, funded by central and provincial budgets, is expected to be completed in 2015.
