Over the past years, the province’s tourism sector has made significant progress, attracting 3-4 million domestic and international visitors per year. The province has recorded a yearly average growth of 12 percent in the number of tourists. In 2017, its income from tourism reached VND 3,520 billion. However, its tourism services and products are still deficient in diversity and creativity.

At the conference, the delegates focused on evaluating the current situation of the province's tourism sector over the past time, discussing solutions to promote the tourism of Thua Thien-Hue province, as well as introducing some new tourism products.

Speaking at the event, Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Nguyen Ngoc Thien stressed that Hue is a special city with its historical and cultural values. The province's tourism sector needs to develop and promote more interesting activities reflecting a destination with diverse cultural values combined with sea tourism, resorts and services on the Huong River, he added.
