Lu Quang Ngoi, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the festival helped travel agents in and outside of the province to share their experiences in tourism management and development, and gave the locality an opportunity to advertise its cultural values and special tourism products to visitors.

Vinh Long province will continue to focus on developing its eco-waterway tourism with unique products such as homestays and tours of craft villages and cultural and historical relic sites, in the aim of establishing tourism as a key economic sector in the near future.
