Da Nang (VNA) – The central city of Da Nang will hold a series of economic, trade, and investment events in June, most importantly the Da Nang investment forum on June 26, said Ho Ky Minh, Vice Chairman of the municipal People Committee at a press conference on May 31.

According to Minh, the forum will introduce the city’s potential, advantages and investment opportunities to attract capital in Vietnam and abroad, particularly foreign direct investment. This is also a chance for local authorities to listen to opinions of businesses and investors to improve the local business and investment climate.

On the sidelines, an exhibition on Da Nang’s planning until 2030, inauguration ceremonies of key projects, and field trips to many high-tech sites are scheduled to take place.

Meanwhile, from June 4 to 9, the city will host the 16th Asian route development forum (Routes Asia 2022), the largest and biggest event to promote and connect flight networks in the Asia-Pacific region. The event is expected to draw about 450 delegates from 200 international aviation agencies and organisations from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America.

Also in the summer month, Da Nang will kick off the construction of many major projects such the Long Thanh plastic plant, the Nesta Da Nang centre, and the Dana Logistics.

Minh said after five months of 2022, local business, investment, commerce, tourism, culture, and sport activities have resumed in the normal condition.

The June events are expected to create a driving force for the city to bounce back and grow, he stressed.

Covering 1,255sq.km, the city is cited as an entrance to four UNESCO-recognised World Heritage sites including the former royal capital city of Hue, Hoi An ancient city and My Son Sanctuary in Quang Nam province, and Phong Nha-Ke Bang Park in Quang Binh province.

Da Nang has a total of 90 kilometres of coastline and dozens of beaches, including stunning My Khe. Meanwhile, the city’s Ngu Hanh Son (Marble Mountain) district is renowned as a centre for stone art, with Non Nuoc craft village stands at the foot of the Marble Mountain.

Experts said those natural advantages, combined with Da Nang’s modern infrastructure, good services, safety and hospitality, create unique traits for the central coastal city.

Da Nang has emerged as a destination of leisure, media and spiritual tourism, as well as entertainment and shopping activities, and a venue of conferences.

The city was named in the top 10 holiday places in Asia by the prestigious online tourism magazine Smart Travel Asia and top 10 fresh destinations by the global online accommodation reservation provider Agoda in 2013.

In addition, the Da Nang International Airport was ranked third among the best airports in the world in 2014, according to a survey by Dragon Air.

According to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, Da Nang is the best place to live in Vietnam with many world records. The cable line that takes visitors to the peak of Ba Na Hills at an altitude of 1,487 metres in just 17 minutes and is able to carry 3,000 passengers per hour won four Guinness Records in 2013. Besides, Sun Wheel, which is 115 metres in height and situated in Asian Park, Hai Chau district, was listed among the 10 tallest wheels in the world.

On the list of the world’s top 10 destinations for 2018 compiled by the online marketplace and hospitality service Airbnb, Da Nang was ranked fifth in booking surges of up to 255 percent.

In 2018, the city was ranked the second most popular destination for solo or couple travellers by the Republic of Korea’s Ticket Monster Inc. The website said people who plan to travel abroad with family members often choose Da Nang./.
