The Ministry of Culture is proposing to the government to appoint a fourth deputy minister who would be responsible for the policy over national minorities, ethnic culture, and intangible heritage.

Currently, these functions are divided between three deputy ministers.

The fourth deputy minister would also be responsible for cooperating with local governments, the activities of cultural centres, creating and implementing a basic package of cultural services, [as well as] legal regulations related to the commemoration of historical events.

Currently, three deputy ministers work in the Ministry of Culture.
