Under the plan, the district carried out a wide range of measures to improve state management capacity on tourism activities, better business climate to encourage companies, organisations and individuals to develop new tourism products.

Last year, communications work was given due attention to popularising local tourism sites. A portal on tourism development was set up while diagrams to introduce local tourist attractions were penned and arranged around the district, making it easier for visitors to discover the area.

Thanks to the district’s sound investment promotion work, it has attracted eight investment projects so far, five of which received approval in principal from the provincial People’s Committee and the remainders are under local authority’s review.

Several companies are carrying surveys to land investments in the district’s tourism sector, namely Viet-ECO Hoa Binh JSC, La Vong Group JSC, Vietnam Finance Investment Group JSC, KB Group Trade and Investment JSC, and VinGroup.

It will sharpen focus on enhancing state management over tourism activities, attracting investors to improve quality of tourism products and services, popularising local destinations, luring investments in transport infrastructure, as well as preserving traditional cultural values in tandem with building new style rural areas.

The district will work with competent sides to organise tourism stimulus programmes to invite more domestic and foreign visitors, while capitalising on local strengths to develop impressive tourism products, contributing to the province’s sustainable economic structural transition./.
