The central province of Quang Binh on November 15 hosted a conference on tourism connectivity between central provinces in a bid to better link travel agencies and hospitality businesses in the region.

The conference drew participants from over 100 travel firms spread across Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue, Da Nang, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Addressing the event, Vice Chairman of Quang Binh People’s Committee Tran Tien Dung said that connectivity among tourism sectors in regional province has been limited, with local businesses operating spontaneously and separately.

In recent years, Quang Binh has focused on boosting its tourism sector through developing an infrastructure system that matches with other localities, he claimed.

Through the conference, Quang Binh hopes to promote its image and introduce unique tourism products, thus attracting more visitors, Dung added.

Quang Binh has abundant potential to develop various tourist attractions, including a good base for eco-tourism, culture, history, maritime tourism and resorts. Many new tours have already been opened, including one that explores Son Doong - the largest cave network in the world.-VNA
