According to VNA, the ceremony was chaired by Chairman of the Da Nang People’s Committee Huynh Duc Tho and Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate.
Addressing the event, Mayor Tate spoke highly of Da Nang’s development over recent years, saying the MoU aims to strengthen strategic relations between the two parties in multiple fields of endeavour, such as education, health care, natural disaster management, maritime transport, trade, investment, technology, renewable energy, and more.
The two will now flesh out the details of cooperative activities, he said, adding that he has invited Tho to visit the Gold Coast for further discussions.
Tho, for his part, said that both Da Nang and the city of Gold Coast are young and dynamic coastal destinations boasting substantial potential for further tourism development.
Lying in Australia’s eastern coast, the city of Gold Coast is seen as a tourist centre of the state of Queensland, receiving 13 million tourists in 2018.
It has three universities rated internationally and hosts around 35,000 students from other countries worldwide.
Meanwhile, Da Nang welcomed 8.69 million holidaymakers last year, including nearly 3.5 million foreigners, up 30.7 percent against 2018.
It aims to welcome 9.8 million visitors in 2020, a year-on-year increase of 12.74 percent, the city’s Department of Tourism said.
The number of international visitors is expected to rise by 13-15 percent year-on-year.
Experiencing robust growth over recent years, Da Nang is now facing a host of challenges in urban development, transport, the environment, and employment, he said, and is, therefore, wanting to learn from the Gold Coast’s experience in coping with such problems.
The two leaders agreed they would implement specific programs to together foster sustainable economic growth once COVID-19 is fully under control./.
