HỘI AN — Ministries and relevant agencies should greatly boost co-operation in developing tourism as a key industry with a target of contributing  一0 to  一 二 per cent to the gross domestic product (GDP) in  二0 二0, Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc said at the National Conference on Tourism development in the central city of Hội An yesterday.

The PM emphasised that Việt Nam’s tourism should focus on building its brand, service quality and sustainable development, while preserving cultural values, the environment, and tourist safety.

Phúc said tourism administration agencies should make rapid changes in their awareness of the tourism industry’s needs in promotion, planning and management.

“The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will play a key role in boosting tourism development with a target of hosting  一 五 million foreign tourists and  七 五 million domestic visitors, creating revenues of between US$ 二 九 million to $ 三 二. 五 billion in  二0 一 六- 二0,” Phúc said.

He urged the ministries and agencies to prepare well and plan a "green industry"大众strategy to meet the rapid growth of tourism.

The PM also said the Government has assigned the ministry of Public Security to build an e-visa progra妹妹e with a total investment of VNĐ 二00 billion (nearly $ 九 million) to be launched in early  二0 一 七.

He also agreed that the government would provide initial funds of around VNĐ 三00 billion ($ 一 三. 三 million) to establish the Tourism Development Fund to help the smooth development of tourism.

At the meeting with over  四00 participants, the PM asked embassies, trade representatives and the ministry of Foreign Affairs to seek opportunities for tourism promotion and advertisement at international exhibitions and fairs.

He stressed that the  二0 一 七 APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation) Su妹妹it in Đà Nẵng next November will provide a major opportunity to introduce Việt Nam to thousands of diplomats, managers, media and friends from different countries.

Phúc also urged the Ministry of Transport to open more international routes to create bridges from Việt Nam to the rest of the world.

Speaking at the conference, Culture, Sports and Tourism Minister Nguyễn Ngọc Thiện said poor promotion and advertising campaigns and a lack of famous international destinations are seen as big challenges for tourism reaching its  二0 二0 targets.

“Despite revenues of VNĐ 三 三 八,000 billion ($ 一 五 billion) in  二0 一 五, Việt Nam’s tourism only invested a modest $ 二 million in promotion and advertisement of national destinations,” Thiện said, adding that tourism contributed  六. 六 per cent of GDP in  二0 一 五. 

“In the first seven months of this year, the country hosted  五. 五 million foreign tourists and  三 八. 二 million domestic visitors, a  二 四 per cent growth in comparison to last year, earning VNĐ 二 三 五,000 billion ($ 一0. 四 billion) with a  二 三 per cent increase,” Thiện reported.

Thiện, however, said the tourism industry still displayed poor performances in developing significant destinations and international standard eco-tourism sites.

He said management at travel sites and tourism environment was seen as a weak point with poor quality control, service, illegal travel service providers as well as poor forecasting of tourism development.

The minister also said human resources for tourism have yet to meet the demand, while lacking co-operation among ministries and agencies still obstruct tourism growth.

Thiện also asked the Government to provide visa exemptions for more countries (currently  二 二 countries), noting that Thailand provides free visas for tourists from  六 一 countries; Malaysia  一 五 五; the Philippines  一 五 七; Singapore  一 五 八 and Indonesia  一 六 九.

He said visas still limit travel to Viet Nam to  一 五 days, while an e-visa service has yet to be applied.

He stressed that Việt Nam has yet to set up representative offices of tourism aboard.

Thiện called on the Government to create more favourable policies to develop international tourism brands, including such sites as Phú Quốc, Sơn Đoòng Cave in Quảng Bình, Mỹ Khê beach in Đà Nẵng and Hạ Long Bay.

He also warned that the surge of Chinese tourists has a big impact on the tourism development policy of many countries, not only Việt Nam.

According to Việt Nam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT), the country hosted more than  一. 二 million Chinese tourists in the first six months of  二0 一 六, a quarter of the total number of international tourists.

According to a global tourism competitive capacity report by the World Economic Forum, Việt Nam’s tourism ranked  七 五th out of  一 四 一 economies. 

In comparison to ASEAN countries, Việt Nam has fared poorly in terms of prioritising tourism, visas, open-door policies and sustainable environmental development. 

Oil refinery visit

PM targets doubling of tourism

On the same day, Prime Minister Phúc paid a visit to Bình Sơn Oil Refining-Petrochemical Company in Quảng Ngãi Province.

Bình Sơn Company is the operator of the Dung Quất Oil Refinery Plant.

Nguyễn Hoài Giang, chairman of the board of directors of Bình Sơn Company, informed the Prime Minister about the operation of the plant since it went into operation seven years ago, saying that the plant has produced more than  四 一 million tonnes of various products and submitted VNĐ 一 三0 trillion (US$ 五. 七 billion)to the State budget.

Giang said the company would soon try to increase the capacity of the Dung Quất plant from  六. 五 million tonnes to  八. 五 million tonnes.

Prime Minister Phúc praised the Dung Quất Oil Refinery Plant for its achievements and highly applauded the efforts of the company’s leaders to protect the environment. Phúc said this could be a role model for other industrial projects in Việt Nam.— VNS
