During the workshop, delegates listened to speakers and researchers presenting discussions on the current situation and potential for tourism development in Vinh Long province. The topics included natural infrastructure, socio-economic factors, human resources, and the cultural and tourism resource system. The contents being particularly emphasized were the diverse and rich cultural and tangible and intangible heritage of Vinh Long province, which has great potential for development but has not been fully exploited in line with the strengths and tourism products of the region. The workshop also included proposals for solutions and directions for the development of tourism in Vinh Long, especially in terms of investment, potential exploration, resource utilization, and collaborative partnerships in implementing digital transformation projects and digital technologies in tourism businesses in the near future.
Through this workshop, with the aim of enhancing the role of member associations and tourism association members, organizations, and individuals in promoting, connecting, and coordinating state management agencies and specialized sectors, an effort to provide information and build a database to support the development of tourism in the province will be initiated. This will provide essential information for tourists both domestically and internationally when visiting Vinh Long province. This initiative aims to contribute to the economic and social development needs of the locality. The proposed solutions for developing tourism in Vinh Long will be considered by functional departments in consultation with provincial leaders, ultimately leading to new objectives and directions for innovation and the development of new products based on the strengths and tourism potential aligned with the development direction of Vinh Long province.
