Cleanliness and warmness will help Vietnam with more visitors

The evening of 10th April, the opening ceremony of National Tourism 2016 - Phu Quoc - Mekong Delta was held in Phu Quoc Island, Kien Giang Province. This is one of the opening events for more than 60 tourist activities taken place in 18 provinces and cities across the country throughout 2016.

Speaking at the ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam recognized Vietnam's tourism has not stopped growing in recent years. From early 1990 until now, the number of international visitors has increased more than 30 times, domestic tourists increased nearly 60 times and revenue from tourism increased by more than 240 times. However, Deputy Prime Minister also frankly acknowledged Vietnam's tourism is still inferior to many countries with similar advantages in nature, culture.

Show the problem, Mr. Dam said that should create a favorable investment environment to develop the convenient infrastructure systems from traffic to the accommodation facilities and Phu Quoc is a vivid demonstration. In 2000, the island welcomed 100,000 visitors. In 2013, only reached more than 620,000. In 2014, the number of visitors increased to 1,050,000 turns of visitor and 1.6 million in 2015, brought turnover was nearly $ 100 million.

"As the people of Phu Quoc, as the sea, as forest, but when there is an international airports, power grid, the large-scale tourism investment projects, the surprised movement towards a potential tourism paradise", Mr.Dam said.

However, Deputy Prime Minister also said that the available conditions, tourists can be still more growing if we focused on handling problems and shortcomings having been identified.

That is the reform of administrative procedures relating to immigration, travel, accommodation, investment and trading. That is rid of the burglary, begging, unhygienic, rudeness. People should be propagandized, campaigned to be aware and give up the bad jobs and habits, negative impact on tourism. These things really do not need more investment but they are meaningful and effective.

Deputy Prime Minister shared concerns with status of shortage of staff, tourism employees who are trained basic and professionally, good at foreign languages. However, he pointed out that from successful lessons in many countries, we just do two things best are "cleanness and attitude" makes guests feel more comfortable a lot. "These two things do not need being studied in a large school, as well as good at foreign languages. Everywhere, everything from small to large will be clean, very clean. All the words, gestures, eye, smile ... are shown, starting from the respectful heart".

Mr. Dam believe, with practical actions of the authorities, the business community and residents, Vietnam’s tourism including the Mekong Delta will be impressive developments in 2016, creating momentum for a period of faster development, more sustainable.
