Northern province of Quang Ninh promotes tourism in UK
In the framework of the Vietnam Discovery program, the Quang Ninh delegation led by Dang Huy Hau - Standing Vice Chairman of the Quang Ninh provincial People’s Committee, organized many activities to introduce, promote and boost tourism in the UK.
At the seminar, Mr. Dang Huy Hau said that Quang Ninh has Ha Long bay, which is the World Natural Heritage with favorable conditions for tourism development.
Coming to Ha Long bay, tourists can visit landscapes, swimming, sailing, parachuting, ping, exploring coral reefs, fishing, enjoying unique cuisine and scientific research.
Recently, Quang Ninh province has also developed many new types of tourism such as enjoying Ha Long bay from seaplane and experiential tourism to countryside.
Mr. Hau also added that among total 150,000 UK tourists to Vietnam each year, half of them visit Quang Ninh province and Ha Long bay. However, tourism cooperation potentials between the two sides have not been exploited absolutely.
Therefore, Vietnamese and UK businesses can connect to form tours to Quang Ninh and Ha Long bay. Quang Ninh also creates investment opportunities in tourism infrastructure for UK businesses. In addition, the UK can support Quang Ninh province in training to improve tourism management capacity. To attract more tourists and investors from the UK, Quang Ninh commits to simplify administrative procedures as well as apply many preferential policies.
Also at the seminar, the Quang Ninh provincial People's Committee signed a memorandum on cooperation, tourism promotion with Vietnamese Student Association in the UK (SVUK) and the Overseas Vietnamese Association in the UK and a memorandum on tourist development cooperation with Vietnam Airlines in the UK and Thien Minh Group. Through the partners, Quang Ninh province hopes to have more opportunities to enhance tourism cooperation with the UK in the future.
Apart from that, Quang Ninh delegation had a stall to display and promote tourism activities, attracting a large number of guests to visit./.
