During the event, Quang Ninh’s Ha Long and Mong Cai cities and Guangxi’s Dongxing and Guilin signed a memoranda of understanding (MoU) on tourism development.
Accordingly, the localities agreed on general cooperation principles and mechanism to expand tours, and commitments to service quality, among others.
Representatives from the localities briefed on their potential and advantages.
Ha Long underlined its potential for sea and island tourism development, with the highlight being the UNESCO-recognised World Heritage site of Ha Long Bay while Mong Cai city introduced its cultural, sea-island, and border tourism development.
The two Chinese localities also introduced their potential for cultural, resort, border tourism development.
Over the past years, the four localities have gained significant achievements in tourism cooperation. The effectiveness is yet to match the potential.
The two sides need to boost their exchange and connection to develop their own special products. More communications and advertisement campaigns should be launched, while state management on tourism should be strengthened, and experience exchanged.
