Local tourism development strategy untill 2020 has improved


Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has approved Vietnam’s tourism development strategy until 2020, with a vision toward 2030.
Under the strategy, until 2020, Vietnam’s tourism will mainly become a spear economic sector with high professionalism, comprehensive and modern infrastructure system, high-quality products imbued with the national character and competitive capacity with other countries in the region. Until 2030, the country will have a developmental tourism sector.
The local tourism sector will expand on the basis of the strength of tourism resources. Moreover, the sector will prioritise the development of island tourism and eco-tourism and further enhance the combination between localities to build a tourist product specific for every region. It targets an average growth rate of 11.5-12 percent per annum for the 2011-2020 period.
In 2015, the country is expected to greet 7-7.5 million foreign tourist arrivals and 36-37 million domestic arrivals. Total revenue from the tourism sector is forecast to reach USD 10-11 billion, contributing 5.5-6 percent to the national GDP./.
