The Government unveiled an action plan on Monday to transform the tourism sector into the country’s economic engine, following the Poliburo’s decision to pursue that goal.
The plan includes eight core objectives aimed at including the public in the sector’s development and promoting the image of Viet Nam and its people to the international community. It will also require the sector to make various adjustments in order to better adapt to the global market, especially localities with great potential for tourism. Provincial governments were tasked with reviewing their tourism strategy and marshalling all available resources to boost the sector’s development.
Central government agencies were urged to speed up the implementation of the country’s Law on Tourism, which encourages investment in the sector, and to improve the country’s human resources in the tourism industry. The plan also stresses the importance for the agencies to enact administrative reforms, in order to facilitate the implementation of major tourism projects across the country and to simplify the country’s existing immigration and investment laws. Such reforms will help fuel future growth in the industry, the plan suggests.
Stronger infrastructure, the plan says, will provide a foundation for the tourism industry’s continued growth. Numerous projects are including highways, seaports, airports and railway are to be completed in the next few years.
The country will continue its “open air” policy and freedom of the air, which allows domestic and international airline companies to easily establish new air routes and better ultilise existing ones. The plan also places great importance in solving bottlenecks and overcrowding at Viet Nam’s airports, which has become an increasingly alarming issue in recent years.
Government agencies were asked to coordinate efforts and to implement new information technology to improve Viet Nam’s international tourism brand recognition and positioning.
The plan also emphasizes the government’s commitment ensure security, fairness and transparency in tourism activities. Tourism enterprises are encouraged to innovate and diversify their products and services, especially in promoting the country’s cultural heritage and numerous handicraft villages.
