The People’s Committee of the northern mountainous province of Bac Kan on June 12 signed a contract with the Japanese company Nikken Sekkei Civil Engineering to develop a plan for tourism at the Ba Be National Park until 2030.

According to the Deputy Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Trieu Duc Lan, the province will create the best possible conditions for the contractor to complete the project.

Ba Be National Park is included in the Ramsar Convention on the list of wetlands that are of international importance, and is the most famous and popular tourism destination in Bac Kan.
The bio-diversity in the 10,000 ha park is also impressive as it is home to 1,268 species of flora and fauna. The site earlier was recognised as an ASEAN Heritage Park in 2004.-VNA
