As one of the important commercial and industrial hubs in northern Vietnam, the city is striving to make tourism a spearhead economic sector and turn itself into one of the nation’s key tourism destinations.
According to the municipal People’s Committee’s action programme on tourism development from 2017 – 2020 with a vision through 2030, Haiphong hopes to receive 8 million tourists and earn VND3.5 trillion (US$154 million) with expected annual average growth rates of between 8.2% and 8.9%.
