VOV.VN - The upcoming National Tourism Year 2022 is expected to present a prime opportunity for the local tourism industry to recover and continue elevating the image of both the nation and Quang Nam province to domestic and international tourists, according to local authorities.
Tran Van Tan, vice chairman of Quang Nam Provincial People's Committee, said there will be a diverse range of activities taking place throughout National Tourism Year 2022 under the theme of “Quang Nam - Green tourism destination".
These events include tours to traditional craft villages, a journey along part of the legendary Ho Chi Minh trail, and heritage sites in the locality, as well as various river and eco-tours.
Tan emphasised that National Tourism Year 2022 will officially kick off on March 25, 2022, at Hoi An Impression Theme Park, noting that the event is expected to contribute to reboot the local tourism industry as the nation moves into the post-pandemic period.
Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Doan Van Viet expressed his belief that the event will lay a foundation for both domestic and international tourism activities to bounce back, stimulate greater tourism demand, and showcase Quang Nam as an attractive tourism destination.
The National Tourism Year 2022 must be organised on a national scale in order to become the local tourism industry’s largest event, develop the tourism brand of the locality, introduce unique tourism products, as well as enhancing linkages with other localities throughout the region, Deputy Minister Viet noted.
The Deputy Minister went on to suggest that the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) and relevant units provide assistance in disseminating information on the event both at home and abroad, and hosting major events as well as ramping up international tourism activities.
