“In particular, tourism development must be closely and effectively linked with the conservation and promotion of heritage values ​​and national cultural identity. We need to build big international tourism brands with Vietnamese identity, unique cultural identity, and friendly Vietnamese people,” the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister asked all levels of government, the business community, and each citizen to join hands and create a green environment for the sustainable development of the tourism industry with practical actions.

It is necessary to strengthen investment attraction and technological innovation and promote digital transformation in the tourism industry. This is an inevitable trend in the world to move towards the formation of a smart tourism ecosystem that connects actively tourists, service providers, and state management agencies to build a green tourism environment.

There is also a need to mobilize the participation of the local community in forming a competitive and responsible tourism service supply chain and raise their awareness so that each citizen becomes a “tourist ambassador”.

The Vietnamese government has chosen the theme “Unity and discipline, proactive adaptation, safety and efficiency, recovery and development” for 2022, Chinh said, adding that, keywords of Vietnam’s tourism in 2022 and the coming period will be peace, cooperation, development, greening, safety, friendliness, digitalization, and connection.
