The move is aimed at materializing the municipal Party Committee’s resolution on tourism development in the 2016-2020 period and the following years. As such, free Wi-Fi will be provided at tourist places and at 80% of hotels and restaurants in the city.

It also targets to contribute to speeding up the promotion of the capital's potential, tourist products, services, and tourist attractions; creating a beautiful Hanoi – the city of peace, safety and friendliness in foreigners’ eyes.
