Authorities of the southernmost province of Ca Mau plan to call for social involvement in promoting tourism development in the locality in the 2014-2015 period.

Accordingly, the province needs about 2 trillion VND (94 million USD) to implement the plan.

The province gives priority to money going into 10 tourism sites in the period, including Dat Mui commune in Ngoc Hien district, Khai Long beach on Hon Khoai Island in the district, Hon Da Bac site in Tran Van Thoi district, the Mui Ca Mau and Vo Doi national parks in U Minh Ha area and wild bird gardens in the locality.

Dat Mui is now one of the leading tourism sites in Ca Mau province, attracting thousands of domestic and foreign visitors a day during holidays and festivals.

Nguyen Truong Giang, Chairman of the Ngoc Hien district People’s Committee, said the policy of encouraging social involvement in tourism investment opened a great opportunity for the province’s tourism sector in general and the district in particular.
It is necessary to further develop and upgrade transport infrastructure in the locality in order to facilitate visitors travelling to the tourism sites, he stressed.
Ca Mau province sets a target of receiving at least two million holidaymakers every year from 2015, and hopes to earn an annual turnover of about 700 billion - 1 trillion VND (23.9 million - 47 million USD) from the sector.-VNA
