The tourism industry of the northern coastal province of Quang Ninh has been significantly improved, creating a good impression on visitors.

The evaluation was made by the province’s officials and travel companies during a conference on July 24 to review one year of implementing a direction on intensifying the management of tourism in the locality.

Thanks to the installation of 28 plates announcing hotline telephone numbers in ports, wharves and tourist sites, inspectors have been informed and handled hundreds of regulatory violations.

The improvement is also attributable to the active involvement of relevant agencies in inspecting and dealing with violations, raising residents and tourists’ awareness in the management of the tourism industry.

However, Vice Chairwoman of the provincial People’s Committee Vu Thi Thu Thuy also pointed out flaws in environmental issues, tourists’ safety, tourism products, infrastructure as well as the professionalism of services.

She asked the tourism sector and relevant localities to strictly carry out the committee’s orders and build more regulations to manage the tourism industry.

They are required to diversify tourism products, particularly in areas with strengths in marine tourism such as Co To and Van Don districts, and focus on tourists’ safety, environmental issues and training for tourism staff.-VNA
