Ha Noi aims for 30m visitors by 2020

The capital city plans to welcome 30 million visitors, including 5.7 million foreigners, by 2020, according to the municipal Department of Tourism.

The city also hopes to generate VND120 trillion (US$5.36 billion) in tourism revenue by 2020, with an annual growth of 15-17 per cent till then.

Head of the tourism department Do Dình Hong said the city would continue to develop infrastructure, improve tourism products in terms of quality and diversity and have better human resources in a move to make tourism more sustainable and a key industry.

The department’s statistics revealed that Hà Nội posted annual growth of more than 10 per cent in tourist arrivals in recent years. In 2015, the city attracted approximately 19.7 million travellers. Of them, 3.3 million came from overseas, accounting for 40 per cent of the foreign visitors to Việt Nam.

The number of travellers coming to the city reached more than 11 million in the first half of this year, including two million foreigners, up 30 per cent year-on-year. That has earned the city VNĐ31.3 trillion ($1.4 billion).

During the reviewed period, most foreign tourists came from China, South Korea, Japan and the United Kingdom, besides Australia, the United States, France and Germany. However, the department said, the number of international visitors to Việt Nam was still much lower than that of other capital cities in the region. It was just one-sixth of the number of visitors going to Bangkok (Thailand), and one-third that of Singapore and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).

Hanoitourist Director Đỗ Đức Kế said the capital city needed to make greater efforts to affirm its position as the country’s largest tourist centre.

Top priority should be given to developing attractive tourism packages and perfecting the quality of existing tourist services, he said.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More


Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
