TIEN GIANG (VNS) — The Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang hopes to get 1.5 million tourists in 2015, representing an annual increase of 6.5 per cent.
Authorities there are making efforts to improve tourism services, diversify tourism products and speed up implementation of key projects, particularly the eco-tourism areas of Dong Thap Muoi, Thoi Son islet, and Tan Thanh-Hang Duong beach resort.
They plan to offer incentives for trade villages and vocational training to help people in rural areas increase their income from tourism and enable sustainable development of the industry.
The province will also strengthen ties with provinces and cities in Viet Nam and abroad to boost tourism.
It plans to co-operate with the Japan International Cooperation Agency to organise the second ancient village festival at Dong Hoa Diep (Cai Be District) this year. — VNS
