This art transmitted and preserved quite intact over hundreds of years with many different forms. In 2013, this art form was recognized by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism as a National Intangible Cultural Heritage. In 2018, the Prime Minister agreed to build a profile of Xoe Thai Art to submit to UNESCO for consideration and inclusion in the list of Representative Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The heritage profile is expected to be completed in December 2019. Thus, the vision for this art form will be raised to an international level; Thereby, the awareness of the local community in continuing to preserve and promote unique values in the traditional cultural capital of the Thai people in particular, the diversity and richness of the cultural identity Vietnam in general is also more profound.
