Ha long Bay tours

The European Union will provide assistance to Vietnam to achieve sustainable tourism development in Halong Bay.

Quang Ninh Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism signed an agreement, 18 October, with the Management Board of the environmentally and Socially Responsible Tourism Capacity Development Programme (ESRT).

The agreement is part of the ESRT activity 2011 to 2015, which is funded by the EU with a budget of 11 million euro. Under the agreement, the programme will assign domestic and international experts to help draft a master plan for tourism development in Quang Ninh province up until 2020.

In addition, the project will also help improve professional skills for tourism workers through training courses. The EU is one of the biggest donors of aid for Vietnam’s tourism sector. This was the second project funded by the union, following the recently completed “Tourism Human Resources Development” project in 2010.
