The Hoa Binh provincial Tourism Steering Committee held a conference on January 25 to outline tourism development tasks for 2024, under the chair of Vice Chairman of the provincial People's Committee Nguyen Van Toan.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People's Committee Nguyen Van Toan speaks at the event.

Last year, the committtee directed its member departments to successfully accomplish the assigned tasks according to the plan, resulting in more effective State management, more focus on planning and investment in tourism infrastructure, joint promotion and development of tourism, improved quality of products and services toward a professional approach that is closely linked with cultural and value preservation, ensuring national defence-security, order and safety for visitors. Consequently, there was a positive growth in tourist arrivals for sightseeing and resort stay, along with a notable increase in total revenue, contributing significantly to socio-economic development.

For the current year, the province has set a target of welcoming 4.2 million tourists, including 500,000 foreigners, with an expected total revenue of 4.6 trillion VND (191.6 million USD). To build on the accomplishments and fix the shortcomings of the previous year, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Toan urged members of the steering committee to effectively perform major tasks and implement tourism development plans. This involves alignment with the broader trajectory of Vietnam's tourism development, adherence to the Government's Resolution No. 82/NQ-CP outlining key tasks and solutions to expedite efficient, sustainable tourism recovery and development; and especially the provincial master plan for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050. Attention should be given to investment in tourism-related infrastructure and technical facilities while relevant departments should develop new tourism products to leave a lasting impression on visitors.
